The radial nerve is one of the three major nerves running down the arm into the hand. Compression or injuries of the radial nerve can lead to weakness in the arm and forearm, including loss of wrist strength and motion. In addition, there will often be weakness and areas of numbness in the fingers and hand. Longstanding radial nerve injuries can lead to severe limitations in arm and hand function that may only be overcome with complex reconstructive surgery.
