A brachial plexus injury can be serious and may require ongoing therapy. It is important
to find a therapist that has experience in the treatment of brachial plexus injury.
Therapists at PPTS have experience in treating brachial plexus injury in children
of all ages. Pia Stampe, PT, DPT is an expert in the treatment of brachial plexus
injury. In addition to teaching about BPI, she sees children from all over the country
for physical therapy.
Ongoing therapy can be coordinated through the child’s health insurance. The family
periodically comes into the clinic in Rochester, New York for therapy and instruction
in a home exercise program. One of the most important components of this program
is parent teaching so that they can carry through with therapy at home. It is imperative
for parents to be well-educated about brachial plexus injuries in order for them
to be the best possible advocates for their child.
Some children with brachial plexus injuries are seen for a period of intensive physical
therapy. For more information about intensive therapy for brachial plexus injury,
