    Jul 01, 2012 · Upton and McComas first described double crush syndrome in 1973. The theory behind double crush syndrome postulated that a proximal lesion in a nerve would make that same nerve more vulnerable to additional distal lesions. Many of the studies investigating the possibility of the double crush syndrome involve lesions in the upper extremity with very few articles written specifically about …

    One possible explanation is a phenomenon called “Double Crush Syndrome” that was first presented back in 1973 by Dr.’s Upton and McComis, MD who postulated that “damage to a nerve at one site along its course may sufficiently impair the overall functioning of the nerve cells so that they become more susceptible than would normally be the case to trauma at other sites”
