CASE REPORT: Physiotherapy Treatment In Case of Traumatic Bracial Plexopathy - DR BHUMIKA NAYAK

Background:  In simple terms, brachial plexus is a network of nerves that conducts signals from the spine to the shoulder, arm and hand.  Anatomically, it is the arrangement of nerve fibers, running from the spine, formed by the ventral rami of the lower cervical and upper thoracic nerve root, specifically from below the fifth cervical vertebra to above the first thoracic vertebra (C5-T1). It proceeds through the neck, the axilla (armpit region) and into the arm.

Injuries to the brachial plexus affect the nerves supplying the shoulder, upper arm, forearm and hand, causing numbness, tingling, pain, weakness, limited movement, or even paralysis of the upper limb. This injury affects the motor and sometimes also sensory functions in the patient’s arm and/or hand, leading to decreased movements and/or sensation of the concerned area.
