Upper-extremity peripheral nerve disorders increase disability and cause emotional stress. Many patients with peripheral nerve disorders undergo surgical intervention, and this research tracks trajectories of disability, pain, and health postoperation (PO). Results show worsening symptoms PO, return to baseline, and finally improvement at 12 weeks. The decline PO endorses early referral to OTs for pain management education as well as activity modifications to decrease experienced disability.
