Upper Limb Neurological Examination


An upper limb neurological examination is part of the neurological examination, and is used to assess the motor and sensory neurons which supply the upper limbs.

This assessment helps to detect any impairment of the nervous system, being used both as a screening and an investigative tool.

The examination findings when combined with a detailed history of a patient, can help a doctor reach a specific or differential diagnosis.

This would enable the doctor to commence treatment if a specific diagnosis has been made, or order further investigations if there are differential diagnoses.
