A general term used for different types of birth related brachial plexus paralysis. Complete brachial plexus paralysis occurs when all five nerves, termed as the brachial plexus, are affected. The entire arm from the shoulder down is paralyzed. Demonstrable sensory loss in the extremity is often present and there can be an associated torticollis.

Torticollis is when the baby faces toward his good side and is unable to face forward for any length of time.





The Brachial Pleuxus nerve is located on the right and left side of your neck, between the neck and shoulder area. It is a group of nerves that run from the spinal cord through the arm to the wrist and hand. The nerves of the brachial plexus can be injured in various ways.

AVULSION
The nerve is completely torn away from the spine.

RUPTURE
The nerve is completely torn, but not where it attaches to the spine. This causes a neuroma.

NEUROMA
Scar tissue developes around the nerve as it heals. The nerve cannot
conduct signals from the spine to the arm/hand, because of the pressure put on the nerve by the scar.

PRAXIS / STRETCH
The nerve is injured/damaged, but is not torn. This type of injury may heal on its own or form a neuroma as well.

Injuries can limit one's ability to perform various movements, such as but not limited to reaching over the head, straightening the arm, grasping objects, etc.
