Brachial Plexus

Elk & Elk's brachial plexus lawyers in Cincinnati: tenacious, tried and true

The brachial plexus is a group of primary nerves that allow the arm to move and feel. During birth, if the infant's shoulder hits the mother's pelvis, the resultant stretch from the forces of labor, operative delivery and obstetrical traction can lead to a stretch or avulsion (tearing) of the nerves, the Cincinnati brachial plexus attorneys explain. Depending upon the severity of the injury to the nerves, this could lead to partial or complete paralysis.

Early intervention is key to maximizing recovery

Our Cincinnati brachial plexus attorneys have seen some babies recover on their own, but others may require specialist intervention. Pediatric neurosurgery and/or nerve grafting is often required for an avulsion. Lesions may heal over time and function may return completely or partially. Although many children less than 1 year old recover range of motionin, those who have not yet healed after this point will rarely gain full function in their arms, according to research by our brachial plexus lawyers in Cincinnati. Early intervention with neurology, neurosurgery and orthopedics can maximize recovery through therapies, nerve grafting and tendon transfers.
