The Abdominal Wall: A Hero Complex
The abdominal wall may be thought of as the superheroes who protect and keep us alive. The muscular layer that lines our core, it gently cradles all organs underneath in place while also preventing unwanted material from escaping out through its other three sides; but this task isn’t easy for them! If you’ve ever had pain under your skin or pressure on one side then chances are good there some kind muscle spasm going on somewhere close by…you guessed correctly-the abdominals (or “ab” button).

Living With Abdominal Cutaneous Nerve Entrapment

The condition of abdominal cutaneous nerve entrapment syndrome (ACNES) is still underdiagnosed and, as such, not readily managed or recognized. ACNET sufferers typically present with severe chronic pain just lateral (next to) the midline on an otherwise healthy abdomen – often pinpointed specifically at one location within it. The theorized cause for this trapping lies in the fact that some branches from lower thoracic spinal nerves travel through what’s called “the rectus abdominis muscle.”
