Radial Nerve Palsy (Saturday Night Palsy)
Radial Nerve Palsy, commonly known as Saturday Night Palsy, Honeymoon Palsy or Crutch Palsy, refers to an injury or compression of the radial nerve at the upper arm. This often happens on Saturday nights when one puts their arm around their significant other at the movies or when one falls asleep with the upper arm in an awkward position, especially with the overuse of alcohol, waking up with numbness or tingling sensation or an inability to extend the wrist and fingers.
If these symptoms persist, you should see an Electrodiagnostic Specialist (EMG/NCV). We at California Sports & Rehab can accommodate your needs at multiple locations in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas.
