Do nerves regenerate? Once they are damaged, is it permanent?


Research studies have shown that peripheral nerves can be healed after they have been damaged. The process is slow and depends on the severity of the damage and the time that has passed since the damage. If decreased estrogen during your menopausal transition is the cause of your peripheral neuropathy, hormone therapy may stop your symptoms. Working with a physical or occupational therapist can also be helpful. Talk to your healthcare provider to find the best treatment approach for your individual situation.
