Brachial Plexus Injuries

Request an appointment

    The brachial plexus is the grouping of axon networks that manage the mobility and sensitivity of the upper limbs. Its origin is in the systema nervosum centrale. As a critical effect of abrasion of the brachial plexus, limited mobility is experienced and also acute aching and soreness.

    The technical knowledge and experience of the medical team is essential in order to achieve optimal results during operational intervention. As you know, nerve fibers in the body are sensitive to strain, to the force acting on them, and to external trauma; therefore, all these factors can lead to slight or full destruction of the axons. This can impair the sensorial and motion abilities of the organs and even lead to the point of immobility.

    Frequent Causes of Brachial Plexus Injuries

    Brachial plexus injury is provoked by a range of reasons:

    • Strong blow;
    • Exertion by a large weight on a given area;
    • Ballistic traumas and puncture with a sharp-edged object;
    • Distension.

    Brachial plexus injury is established with a wide range of tests, EMG and NF examinations in order to reach the maximum precision. MRI might also be required for those who suffer from brachial plexus injury.

    Treatment of Brachial Plexus Injuries

    As for multilevel Brachial plexus injury, it ranges from minimal loss of the motion range and hand sensitivity to absolute immobility. When it comes to particularly minor trauma, traditional medical care will be preferred, including remedial exercises and techniques to heal the critical areas. If one suffers from critical brachial plexus injury, neurosurgery is the only efficient option to heal the body functions.

    It should be noted here that from 2-4 months after the trauma, the doctors decide if the operation is required: if within this period of time the situation has not changed for the better, that is, if the body is not able to heal on its own, it is essential to bear in mind the prospects of rebuilding the brachial plexus.
