Brachial Plexus Neuropathy
Often, it is thought that shoulder pain results from working out too hard, or it is just a regular part of the aging process. The truth is, the longer you ignore the problem, the harder it is to treat. When the nerves in your upper shoulder are damaged, it can lead to a type of peripheral neuropathy called Brachial neuritis. This neuropathy affects the chest, shoulders, arms, and hands.
What Can Cause Brachial Plexus Neuropathy?
While the cause of this neuropathy is unknown, the symptoms of brachial neuritis seem to be related to another illness or injury. In other cases, the pain and weakness could connect the disease without explanation. Symptoms include:
- Severe pain in the upper arm or shoulder
- Pain that only affects one side of the body
- No muscle control or sensation in the arm
How Can Our Physicians Help With Brachial Plexus Neuropathy?
In some cases, acute brachial neuritis will eventually heal on its own. While that is a good thing, recovery can take up to three years. At Regenadoc, we offer our patients a variety of treatment options. When it comes to brachial neuritis, pain typically begins when one or many nerves are inflamed, stretched, compressed, or, in severe cases, ripped or torn away from the spinal cord.
However, in most cases, the pain is only present on one side of the body. The pain may reduce after several hours or days, depending on the severity of the injury. Once we do the initial examination, we will create a custom treatment plan based on our finding to ensure you get the best results. Regardless of how the pain occurs, we have the treatment you need to help you find relief for the pain. Give our Clifton Area office a call today at (973) 314-9797 to get started.
