Motor nerves vs sensory nerves

So we all know and feel the effects of nerve compression, that numbness tingling feeling, or on the other side the harp burning electric pain

However the one thing I never hear anyone talk about is how long can a motor nerve (feeds the organs non sensory) be compressed before complications arise, or permanent damage can happen.



  • Sorry that was supposed to say autonomic nerve

    suppadev - I'm suggesting that you google wikipedia autonomic nervous system, because it is about the best source I know that tries to explain in "laypersons language" the autonomic nervous system.  Within that write-up are links to even sub-parts and functions of the autonomic nervous system.  Maybe someone else can directly answer your question.

  • Thanks nutcase007 ill check there, Just in general the motor and sensory nerves are addressed with OA but the effect on the autonomic nervous system (since it all goes through the spinal column) is not directly referenced (that I could find)
