The brachial plexus is a group of nerves that send impulses from the spinal cord to the upper limbs.
Injuries to the brachial plexus occur when these nerves are stretched.
Severe brachial plexus injuries result in loss of movement in the arm, including the shoulder and hand.
Nerve injuries can occur during sports activities, most commonly in football and wrestling. Injuries can also result from accidents or falls.
With its professional approach and the application of innovative therapeutic methods, Fizionova Center successfully conducts the rehabilitation of injured nerves.
HOW DOES A BRACHIAL PLEXUS INJURY OCCUR?
Causes and Factors Damaging the Brachial Nerve
Nerve injuries often occur during sports activities or in more severe cases as a result of traffic accidents. In addition to the mentioned circumstances, the causes can also be the following:
- Inflammatory processes leading to immobility of certain muscles
- Growth of malignant or benign tumors
- Radiation therapy
- Parsonage-Turner syndrome
THE MAIN SYMPTOMS OF BRACHIAL NERVE INJURY
How to recognize damage to the brachial nerve and its characteristic signs?
Severe injuries to the brachial nerve result in the loss of mobility in the arm, including the shoulder and hand, as well as intense pain.
However, if there has been a milder nerve stretch, the characteristic symptoms include:
- A sensation of electricity running down the arm
- Tingling in the arm
- Loss of sensitivity in the hand
- Intense pain
If you experience these symptoms, seek help and schedule an examination at Fizionova Center.
