Brachial Plexus Injures
Brachial Plexus are nerves that sends signals from the brain to the shoulders, arms, and hands, and vice versa. Brachial Plexus injuries result from over stretching or compressing the nerves. Injuries may also result when the nerves are torn away from the spinal cord. Furthermore inflammation and tumors in the shoulder may also affect the nerves. Brachial Plexus injuries can leave an individual’s arm and hand to be numb or paralyzed.
