About the offer

A neurosurgeon should examine the patient immediately for suspected brachial plexus injury. The most important thing is not to wait. No time to lose because irreversible disorders can develop over time, ranging from weakness in the hand, shoulder, or forearm and ending with paralysis. Restoring the brachial plexus functions is possible with adequate and complex therapy and rehabilitation. During the physical examination, the surgeon will compare the motor function, sensations, and pain in the affected limb with your intact side. Diagnostics also include:Electroneuromyography. It studies the nerve function, location, and extent of its damage, whether nerves and muscles are being restored, and which ones can potentially be used to restore function if surgery is required. MRI. The study visually assesses the anatomical state of the nerves. Doctors can find the place of nerve rupture, determine the separation of the roots from the spinal cord, and the condition of the surrounding soft tissues. It is essential to distinguish brachial plexus injury from neuralgia and other diseases, such as arthritis, bursitis, neuropathies of the hand's nerves, etc. Therefore, for differential diagnosis and determining the disease causes, ultrasound of the shoulder joint, X-rays or CT of the shoulder joint and the plexus, studies of sugar levels, and blood biochemistry can be prescribed.
