After being diagnosed with a brachial plexus injury, patients, whether they have had surgery or not, are carefully followed with serial examinations, enabling us to monitor their progress.

Adult Brachial Plexus Injury

Physical Therapy

An adult brachial plexus injury is usually the result of trauma to the neck and shoulder areas and is usually much more severe than in children. The mechanism of injury is similar to that in children, a lateral traction injury to the brachial plexus nerves in the neck causing damage to the nerves and a loss of function.

The goal of physical therapy in treating patients with brachial plexus injuries is to maximize functional recovery, increase physical strength, reduce compensatory substitutions, and restore form and developmental growth.
