Brachial Plexus is a network of nerves which are connected to the spinal cord and are used to send signals to the shoulder, arm or hand. Brachial Plexus injury happens when these nerves are compressed, stretched or ripped apart from the spinal cord. Minor injuries to the brachial plexus takes place in contact sports like football and rugby and heal on their own. Severe brachial plexus injuries happen mostly in fierce road traffic accidents which leaves the patient with one arm paralyzed or with severe movement restriction.
Minor injuries to the brachial plexus would heal with some rest given to the affected arm. However in severe brachial plexus injuries permanent disability may result if timely treatment is not given. This disability could be in the form of weakness of one arm or complete paralysis of the arm.
Even if you feel a burning sensation in the region between the shoulder and collar bone you should consult a neurosurgeon. If there is weakness in one arm then you should definitely go to the neurosurgeon without any delay. Tests like X-Ray, EMG, Nerve Conduction Velocity and CT Myelography are sometimes done to diagnose the injury to the brachial plexus but MRI remains the gold standard for complete and accurate diagnosis of injury to the brachial plexus.
In cases of severe injury to the brachial plexus, surgical repair is the best solution. Surgery should ideally happen within 6 months of the injury in order to get best results. Brachial Plexus is a very time consuming surgery and therefore most of the neurosurgeons try to avoid this surgery.
