    • nerve is torn from spine
  51. rupture injury
    nerve is torn but not at spinal attachment
  52. Neuroma injury
    nerve has tried to heal itself but scar tissue has grown around  putting pressure on nerve and prevents it from sending signals to muscle
  53. Neuropraxia (stretch)
    • nerve is damaged but not torn
    • most common type of injury to brachial plexus
  54. Saturday Night [crutch] palsy
    • patient unable to extend elbow and will have wrist drop

    • lymph is a clear fluid that travels through arteries, circulates your tissues to cleanse them
    • lymph nodes are filters along the system that trap cancer, bacteria, viruses and unwanted substances and eliminate from the body
  57. Paralysis of Serratus Anterior 
    • due to injury in long thoracic nerve
    • causes it to move laterally and Post.  forming winged scapula
  58. injury of thoracodorsal Nerve
    • become unable to raise the trunk 
    • can't use axillary crutch because shoulder is pushed superiorly by it
  59. injury to the Dorsal Scapula Nerve
    • effects actions of the rhomboids 
    • causing scapula of that side to be located further from the midline
  60. Injury to the Axillary Nerve 
    • winds around the surgical neck of humerous 
    • injured in fracture of proximal end of of humerous and dislocation of shoulder joint
  61. Injury to the Radial Nerve
    • wraps around back of humerous shaft.  cause by improper use of crutches, mid-shaft fracture, or arm hanging on chair
    • decreases ability to extend arm at elbow and difficulty lifting wrist or fingers
  62. injury to Musculocutaneous Nerve
    • rare injury
    • isolated injury causes weakness of shoulder, elbow flexion& supination of forearm
  63. musculotendinous Rotator cuff injuries
    damage  produces instability of glenohumeral joint
  64. Degenerative tendonitis of rotator cuff 
    common in old people 
  65. supraspinous tendon of rotator cuff
    • most commonly torn part.
    • relatively avascular 
    • when torn acutely or eroded by chronic abrasion 2 associated bursea communicate
  66. Subacromial Bursitis
    when bursa is inflamed, abduction of the arm is extremely painful 
  67. Dislocation of Acromiovicular joint
    • AC joint is weak itself and easily injured
    • shoulder seperates from the clavicle because of weight of upper limb 
  68. dislocation of Glenohumeral Joint
    • commonly dislocated by direct or indirect injury 
    • b/c presence of coracoacromial arch and support of rotator cuff, most dislocations of the humeral head occur in the downward direction
