Arm Injury

Traumatic Injury of Arm


Presentation

  • Through electrophysiological examination, the lesion was found to be present at the site where the radial nerve gives off branches to the triceps muscle.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Physician
  • Physicians should have a good working knowledge of the anatomy and potential mechanisms for radial nerve injury.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • As A Physician Assistant I would recommend this to any of my patients with hand, wrist or arm injuries!” Alex Ross, Paris, TN, USA[powerballs.com]
Soft Tissue Mass
  • It can be either a malignant soft tissue mass causing compression of the nerve through infiltration [ 18 ] or a benign growth in a closed anatomical space [ 19 ] (such as the posterior or anterior compartments of the arm).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Disability
  • Sher, Herman, Bellone & Tipograph has been serving the five boroughs for more than 70 years, focusing solely on workers' compensation and Social Security Disability Insurance.[newyorkworkerscompensationlawattorney.com]
Limited Mobility
  • A known site of limited mobility for the radial nerve, the lateral intermuscular septum can cause chronic compression after an insult to the humerus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Fracture
  • Review Etiology Humeral Shaft Fracture Humeral shaft fractures are the leading cause of radial neuropathy in the arm [ 3 ]. These are commonly spiral fractures between the middle and distal thirds of the humeral shaft.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • .), the most common type of arm injury is a broken or fractured arm. If you’re currently suffering or have ever suffered from an arm injury, then you’ve come to the right place.[powerballs.com]
Tingling
  • These signs are often accompanied with pain, tingling, and numbness [ 10 ]. Management Radial nerve palsy can be classified into complete or partial and primary or secondary [ 25 ].[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Stupor
  • The origin of the term is due to the association of the condition with a night spent in alcoholic stupor with the arm draped over a chair or bench [ 3, 4, 24 ].[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Evaluation and treatment of upper extremity nerve entrapment syndromes. Floranda EE, Jacobs BC. Prim Care. 2013; 40 :925–943. [ PubMed ] [ Google Scholar ] 5.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • The prognosis for radial entrapment neuropathies depends on the extent of radial nerve injury. With neuropraxia, recovery is complete in all cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • Therefore, the purpose of this article is to review both etiologies of radial nerve entrapment and the sites at which this can occur in the arm.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prevention

  • Powerball’s non-impact isometric resistance stimulates the muscles as you rehabilitate, thus preventing muscle loss and simultaneously strengthening for a long-lasting recovery.[powerballs.com]
