Nerves in the upper extremity can become compressed at areas of anatomical compromise and produce neuropathic pain and sensorimotor deficits. Symptom severity is related to the degree and chronicity of nerve injury. Nerve compression is often associated with certain occupational or muscle overuse patterns. Electrodiagnostics often carry high utility in diagnosing and localizing these syndromes. Conservative management using rest, activity modification, and rehabilitation can produce improvement in many cases.
