Motor and sensory evaluations like the ones shown here can be used to show progress within GBS patients. Two main symptoms of GBS are motor paralysis and sensory loss presenting with varying degrees of impairment. These 2 deficits were top priority within our case study, because understanding a client's specific level of function by formal evaluations will allow for a complete guide to intervention planning and baseline to measure progress. -Vanessa Umberger
A pinched nerve (aka cervical radiculopathy) is basically when the nerve coming out of the spine gets irritated at the nerve root. This can cause pain and weakness going down into the arm. These exercises should help. See Doctor Jo’s blog post about this at: http://www.askdoctorjo.com/pinched-nerve
Cervical radiculopathy is often referred to as a pinched nerve in the neck. It is characterized by radiating pain from the neck to the shoulder, shoulder blade, arm, or hand.
