Brachial Plexus Injuries: Causes, Symptoms & Treatment
What Is Brachial Plexus Injury?
The Brachial Plexus is a bundle of nerves that send signals to and from the spine to the arms, shoulder, and hands. Over stretching or compressing the nerves in an injury can cause a brachial plexus injury. Injuries may also cause the nerves to pull away from the spinal cord. Other causes of brachial plexus injury or restriction can be from inflammation or tumor pressing on the nerves. Compression on these nerves can cause an individual to feel numbness or even experience paralysis.
Conditions resulting in Brachial Plexus Injury:
