Brachial Plexus Neuritis/Neuropathy San Ramon
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 form of neuropathy affects the chest, shoulders, arms, and hands.
What Can Cause Brachial Plexus Neuritis/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 are connected to a disease that has no explanation. Symptoms include:
- Severe pain in the upper arm or shoulder
- Pain that only effects on the side of the bod
- No muscle control or sensation in the arm
How Can Our physicians Help With Brachial Plexus Neuritis/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 SF Bay Peripheral Neuropathy, we offer our patients a variety of treatment options. When it comes to brachial neuritis, pain typically begins when one or many of the nerves are inflamed, stretched, compressed, or, in severe cases, ripped or torn away from the spinal cord.
In most cases, however, 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 San Ramon Area office a call today at (925) 393-0100 to get started.
