The brachial plexus is a bundle of nerves that sends signals from the spinal cord in your neck to your shoulders, arms, hands and fingers. When one or more of these nerves stretches or tears, children may have numbness, a weak grip and trouble moving their arms. At Nemours Children's, our experts are skilled at diagnosing and treating these brachial plexus injuries in kids of all ages, from the tiniest newborns to growing teens.
Infants have limited control of their movements, so our doctors’ experience with this type of injury in newborns is especially important. With world-class facilities featuring advanced diagnostic techniques and equipment, we’re here to help give your child the best possible start in life.
Nemours has a number of service regions. Selecting your region will help us show you the right contact information and the most relevant content for you.
