The Brachial Plexus refers to the nerves that travel down from the neck and spinal cord to the arm. These are the nerves that are credited with proper functioning and mobility of the shoulders, the arms, the wrists, the elbows and the hand. While an injury to these nerves may be common place and can heal within a matter of weeks, there are other injuries that can prove to be debilitating and can affect the arm in a permanent manner.
HOW IS BRACHIAL PLEXUS DIAGNOSED?
The physician performs examinations of the arm and hands to check the strength of muscles and presence of feeling in different areas. Testing, such as MRI scans, CT scan/myelography may be recommended. A Nerve Conduction Study/Electromyogram (NCS/EMG) is also recommended to measure the electrical activity transmitted by nerves and muscles.
HOW IS BRACHIAL PLEXUS TREATED?
Minor injuries can recover with time and therapy. Several surgical techniques may be used to improve the recovery.
