Can't get water flow to return to bathroom sink


while trying to address a small leak from the trap of our bathroom sink, my husband turned off the water at the shut off valves. when he turned them back on only a small trickle of water will flow through the faucet. it feels like there is no pressure in the pipes. we have water flowing everywhere else in the house. we are at a loss...any ideas what could be causing this?
