Our brain controls the body by means of large string-like structures called nerves. These nerves can be considered like threads controlling our movements, just like puppets. This, therefore, is a connection between our brain and other body parts. Any injury or break in this connection can lead to the brain losing control over that part.

A Brachial Plexus is a group of nerves present in our hands, right from the shoulders to our fingers. This connection when damaged through nerve injury or loss of sensitivity can cause Brachial plexus injury.

This injury can be caused because of many reasons such as accidents or increased pressure on the hand, injury caused during birth being the most common one. This injury cuts out the connection between the brain and the arm and can lead to a seize in arm movements or hand movements or even shoulder movements.

This injury is usually caused by complications in birth. This injury, therefore, has a higher chance of being present since birth, although there could be other reasons like accidents.

This injury can lead to a loss in the ability to move your hind limb/s. However, this doesn’t mean that it isn’t possible to get better at all. Brachial Plexus Injury can be treated by occupational therapy which we will discuss now.

Treating Brachial Plexus Injuries

Being incapable of moving a part of your body such as your arm which has always helped us to perform various day-to-day activities can be very difficult. This gives one a feeling of disparity, but you don’t have to be despair because there is therapy to make you better.

Occupational therapists at Theracure are trained professionals who provide therapy sessions for individuals suffering from developmental disorders and injuries such as Brachial Plexus Injury. Therapy is a practical method to adapt and learn skills, in order to be able to live normally.

The therapists begin so by first assessing the individual and determining the problem. This then is followed by planning which exercises and activities are suitable for it. All the individual has to do is keep practicing the different stretchings and activities prescribed by the OT.

These exercises start with individuals slowly trying to be able to perform simple functions. This can take time but after being able to achieve small milestones as such, the OT levels up the activities. This helps the person to be able to do things one at a time without causing much stress on their mind.

Therapy requires constant practice and patience but when you begin to see the results, it all starts falling in place. Therapy provides you with a treatment and a hope to be able to grow as an individual.
