Physical Therapy for

Brachial Plexus Injuries

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, please contact PPTS
