10yr Old Brachial Plexus Injury/Trap Atrophy

Postby Atlas Urania » Sun Nov 29, 2009 10:31 pm


I am a 23 year old male who is instructed by Shifu Shi De Ru. I am inquiring about any knowledge regarding brachial plexus nerve injuries, qigong healing techniques for this specific channel, qigong healing techniques for rigid deformity of the T-1 C-7 junction. Also my lumbar is unsupported and is now becoming kyphotic and curving outward. Please, anyone that can help me with any aspect of information. This includes specific techniques, posture, even avoiding stances. My left trapezius has extreme atrophy, my left thumb, left tricep, left deltoid. All are atrophied.

My injury was a fall from eight feet onto a concrete step when I was thirteen. I fell on the T-1, C-7. I also once fell on thirteen steps consecutively on my coccyx and broke or fractured my tailbone. Please, all advice is welcome.

With the kindest regards,
-A Humble Qigong Student

For the cervicals, crane neck and turtle neck will be excellent. Dragon neck, too - if you arent able to find those exercises let me know. I'd also encourage embracing the tree ZZ, that will also help greatly with the lumbar issues.

Also, look for any 'cerebrospinal pump' exercises.

Male Deer exercise.

Shoulder work will help the T-C issues.

These meridian stretches might help too.

For the atrophy, have you made sure there are no current pinched nerves?

Hope that helps :)

Excellent exercises but they appear a little to extreme!
Perhaps start small and do not bendto maximum angle of stretch.
I like the references and the channels involved in the specific stretch.

yeah it depends on how acute the injury is, if its very acute then you certainly wont be able to push the limits of range. :)
