Learning the Brachial Plexus



As exams get closer one has to decide what to focus on in terms of revision. Some things are more obvious than others and probably one of the most obvious is learning the brachial plexus. Knowing the muscles and innervation of the upper limb is going to be essential for us future osteopaths and the way that I've found it easiest to learn it all is by knowing the brachial plexus.

To help me to learn the brachial plexus I've drawn up this diagram in Illustrator so that I've got a high quality image to revise from. Please feel free to download it and use it for your own reference.

Coming soon: learning the lumbosacral plexus...

In 10 minutes time, you will be hoping they have lots of questions on the Brachial Plexus in your next exam.
