What is brachial plexopathy?

Also known as: brachial plexus syndromes, brachial plexus injury, peripheral neuropathy

The brachial plexus is a nerve center found on each side of the neck. It’s the junction where nerve roots from the spinal cord branch out into the arms. When the brachial plexus becomes injured or damaged, this is known as brachial plexopathy.
