Houston, Texas (PRWEB) July 25, 2013
Dozens of families experiencing various forms of brachial plexus injuries attended a June clinic hosted by Texas Brachial Plexus Institute and Integra Rehabilitation Physicians at their Charlotte, North Carolina facility. The clinic was such a success that a return clinic is in the works for November in Charlotte and Dr. Armenta and Texas BPI are looking to schedule other such clinics across the country.
Brachial plexus injury is common among newborn babies who have experienced injury to the nerves of the arm during the birthing process. Adult brachial plexus injuries are usually the result of some type of trauma to the neck or shoulder area.
After being diagnosed with such an injury, and whether they have already undergone surgery or are just beginning the process of evaluation, Dr. Armenta will begin a series of examinations to carefully follow the progress of the patient. It is through these examinations that he will plan a long term course of action which may include surgery, physical therapy or other forms of rehabilitation to restore form and developmental growth for the individual.
Dr. Armenta and the staff at Texas Brachial Plexus Institute have a long history of diagnosis and treatment of patients with varying forms of brachial plexus injury and are prepared to assist in the entire process. The clinics that are in the works and spearheaded by Dr. Armenta are meant to help families gather more information about an injury no matter what stage of the process they are in. The clinics are targeted to all ages and will help bridge the gap between diagnosis and proper treatment for the long term welfare of the patient.
The staff of Texas BPI is currently scheduling clinics for the remainder of this year and next and is interested in visiting different areas of the United States. To offer suggestions, patients may contact the Texas BPI staff at 877-508-8274 or visit their website at http://www.texasbpi.com.
