Brachial plexus arm nerve injury. Labelled artwork showing the effects of an injury to the brachial plexus, a grouping of nerves in the neck branching from the lower cervical spine and upper thoracic spine. These nerves connect to the ulnar (nerve) and radial and median nerves (yellow) in the arm, terminating in the fingers. The ulnar nerve originates from near the first thoracic vertebra (T1). Four cervical spinal nerves (C5, C6, C7 and C8) are also labelled. An injury to the brachial plexus can cause symptoms in the arm ranging from tingling to paralysis.
