Understanding brachial plexus

Some may feel a range of symptoms with a brachial plexus injury, including numbness or loss of feeling in the hand or arm. Shoulder, arm, hand, wrist function can be substantially restricted, or in the most severe cases, it can cause paralysis to the arm.

Whilst the symptoms manifest in the shoulder, arm, hand or wrist; the cause is nerve disruption to the spinal cord. Brachial plexus injuries can be treatable, but they can also result in permanent disability. Physiotherapy and other treatments can help, however, surgery is often required.
