The brachial plexus is a set of nerves that send signals from your spine to your arm, hand and shoulder. If you have a brachial plexus injury, our goal will be to restore your mobility so you can resume your daily activities. Our orthopedic doctors will develop a treatment plan based on the severity and type of your injury and when the injury occurred.

Overview

Some nerve injuries can heal on their own. However, we may recommend neurosurgery to repair your damaged nerves, to transfer your tendons and muscles or to remove scar tissue. After surgery, physical and occupational therapy can improve your strength and increase your range of motion. Your therapy also may involve electrical stimulation, Kinesio taping, joint mobilization and aquatic therapy.
