Brachial Plexus Injury

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.
