Brachial Plexus and Peripheral Nerve Disorders

Once nerves exit the spinal cord into the neck region, they are known as the brachial plexus and continue into the arm as peripheral nerves. These nerves are responsible for all sensation and movement, from the shoulder to the fingertips. Injury to these highly organized structures will cause abnormal sensation and pain syndromes, and can result in a limp or flail arm. Diligent physical examination, electrodiagnostic testing, and specialized imaging can help diagnose and allow our physicians to treat brachial plexus and peripheral nerve disorders.
