Brachial Plexus Neuropathy in Staten Island, NY

Calmare Pain Relief Solutions offers treatment for brachial plexus neuropathy to the residents of Staten Island, Brooklyn, and the surrounding communities in New York.

WHAT IS BRACHIAL PLEXUS NEUROPATHY?

The brachial plexus is located on either side of the neck where the nerves to the arms split from the spine. Damage to these nerves results in a condition known as “brachial plexus neuropathy.” While most cases of brachial plexus neuropathy result from direct injury to the area, other causes for the condition include certain birth defects, inflammation due to illness and pressure from tumors.

The most common symptoms of brachial plexus neuropathy are shoulder pain, tingling and numbness and weakness. Because the nerves extend into the arm, the patient may experience the symptoms in the shoulder, arm, hand or wrist.

HOW IS BRACHIAL PLEXUS NEUROPATHY TREATED?

Brachial plexus neuropathy may be treated with Calmare® Therapy, a non-narcotic, non-invasive medical procedure for the treatment of chronic pain. For more information about Calmare® Therapy, please click here.

WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR TREATMENT?

Your physician completes a thorough examination and recommends treatments for your condition, including family history and a discussion about the location and severity of your symptoms. In order to give a proper diagnosis, your physician may recommend additional tests, such as x-rays, MRI, nerve conduction tests and ultrasound.

Once your physician determines that you have brachial plexus neuropathy, you discuss treatment options. Candidates for Calmare® Therapy generally include individuals who are in good general health and suffer from brachial plexus neuropathy.

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PROCESS?

Recovery from brachial plexus neuropathy may take some time, especially if your symptoms are the result of an injury or inflammation. Your physician may recommend physical therapy as part of your recovery process. You should follow your physician’s recommendations as you recover from brachial plexus neuropathy, including any limitations to your activities.
Patients are under medical management during the recovery phase with an emphasis on minimizing and reducing pharmaceutical usage.
