Pediatric Physiotherapy – Brachial plexus lesions

There is a network of nerves that conducts signals from the spinal cord to the hand, shoulders and the arm. This network of nerves is called Brachial plexus. An injury to these nerves may result in a limp, lack of muscle control, lack of sensation in the limbs, or a partial paralysis. Occupational or physical therapy in some cases can lead to a recovery for the child.
