Answer

Functional conditioning of the upper extremity may be helpful in patients with brachial neuritis. Assistive devices and orthotics may be used, depending on the particular disabilities present. The occupational therapist may be involved in maintaining ROM and strengthening, particularly if the hand and wrist are involved.
