A brachial plexus injury is the result of damage to the nerves linking the spine to the shoulder and is often caused by stretching the head away from the arm following a shoulder trauma. It's important to know when to seek treatment for this injury and when it's safe for a young athlete to return to play.
These symptoms may be obvious or subtle, lasting a few seconds or a few minutes, and can last much longer in some cases. While symptoms are present, watch for possible signs of a concussion.
