A peripheral nerve is a type of nerve that lies outside of the brain and spinal cord, it is part of the peripheral nervous system. Peripheral nerves connect the central nervous system (CNS) to the rest of the body by sending signals between the brain and spinal cord to the muscles, skin, and organs, and controlling movements, sensations, and reflexes. When a peripheral nerve is injured, it can cause numbness, weakness, or pain in the affected area. Peripheral nerve injuries can be caused by a variety of factors such as trauma, surgery, infection, or certain diseases such as diabetes.
