Our mission statement is simply to provide help and  support to adults with a bpi, we do not seek to promote  any specific form of therapy or treatment protocol, and  are unaffiliated to any medical or non-medical institution,  individual or business. The information provided here  has been given by individuals and in no way reflects the views of the committee who operate the  website. We are not doctors and you should ALWAYS  seek the advice of a specialist if you have a brachial  plexus injury. There are varying degrees of injury and  each individual case varies greatly from any other. The  most useful resources on this site are the injured people  themselves and you are encouraged to make contact  with others here for one to one support and advice.  Many of us have had a bpi for a large proportion of our  lives and we have ALL been through the trauma of the  early months and years following injury. 

We are a relatively new organisation and we welcome your  suggestions and comments regarding the information  available here. If you would like to see other issues  addressed or are aware of other useful information that  could be presented here, please contact any of the committee members via the contacts and links page. 

Please feel free to use the messageboard attached to this site but also please be aware of the guidelines which are set out on the mesageboard introduction page.
Whilst it is not our intention to attempt to censor the  comments and views of individuals posting messages on  the messageboard, we do ask that you respect others and refrain  from personal attacks. 

The links at the top left of this page will take you to the various pages on the site.

  We sincerely hope you find this website useful.


There are many new cases of Brachial Plexus Injury each year of which a large proportion are adults. One of the largest single groups of adults affected by this injury are motorcyclists, so much so that the condition is often referred to in the NHS as 'Biker's Palsy'. The injury can also be caused to infants during the birthing process and these injuries are referred to as 'Obstetrical Brachial Plexus Injuries'. There is an active support group for families affected by OBPI which has done great work in raising awareness of the birth related injury. www.erbspalsygroup.co.uk  
We hope, through this web site, to provide a similarly successful resource for adults with a Brachial Plexus Injury.
