Improve the quality of your bimanual tasks with Brachial Plexus Injury Rehabilitation

The brachial plexus is a network of connected nerves between your spinal cord, shoulder, arm, and hand that control movement and sensation of the region. When a Brachial Plexus Injury occurs, these nerves can get compressed, stretched, or in very serious situations, torn or ripped. This can compromise the mobility and strength of your upper limb muscles and impact functions such as eating, writing, typing, throwing, or lifting. Depending on the severity of the injury, you may experience:

  • Weakness
  • Numbness
  • Loss of feeling
  • Limited motion
  • Partial or total paralysis

Brachial Plexus Injuries commonly occur during childbirth since the nerves in the region are more vulnerable, particularly in the cases of prolonged labor or high infant weight. This injury can develop into two conditions:

  • Erb’s Palsy – an injury caused to the upper brachial plexus nerves – can lead to loss of motion and numbness in the shoulder, lack of movement in the elbow, and difficulty in lifting arms or moving objects towards the mouth
  • Klumpke’s Palsy – a lower brachial plexus injury – is mainly focused on the loss of motion or sensation in the wrists, hands, and fingers
In adults, Brachial Plexus Injuries most likely happen due to:
  • Contact sports, such as football or rugby, where chances of collision between players are high
  • Road traffic accidents and falls
  • Lugging or carrying heavy objects on shoulders for extended periods of time
  • Tumors or radiation therapy for cancer in the brachial plexus area
  • Industrial accidents caused by impact or heavy machinery
To restore brachial plexus function, Dr Na’eem Sadiq and his team at Plexus offer regenerative rehabilitation programs that include a multitude of therapies and treatments. In addition to regenerative medicine, we also recommend a combination of targeted therapies to improve functions of the affected extremity.
