The Innervation of the Upper Limb


I have written this short segment about the innervation of the upper extremity, just as a reference to the nerves, their origin, course and what they innervate.

Link to an article, click here.

The upper extremity receives neural branches from various spinal nerves. Mostly is innervated by Brachial plexus (C5-T1), but also from Cervical plexus (C3-C4) and intercostal nerve.
