A Clinical Approach to the Treatment of Brachial Plexus Injury


The brachial plexus is a complex of nerves between the neck and shoulders that control muscle function in the chest, shoulder, arms, hands, and feeling in the upper limbs. A brachial plexus injury can occur in about 3 of every 1,000 births. Pending the severity of the injury, many children can be significantly impacted which affects their progression of developmental milestones.
