Long Thoracic nerve injury test
A young man, 20 years old, felt pain his the right hemithorax, following his regular gym session. The pain was also present during the rest & it intensified when inhaling the air. A traditional Thoracic nerve injury test was conducted, as shown on photographs in these series. In order to confirm injury of the long thoracic nerve that innervates a certain group of muscles, a chest X-Ray radiography test was also performed, see image. On this chest X-Ray radiography in the AP (Anterior-Posterior) projection, we see no detectable radiographic signs of traumatic chest soft tissue injuries and subcutaneous emphysema. There are no detectable radiographic signs of pneumothorax and pneumoperitoneum either. This chest X-ray however confirms the traumatic injury to the long thoracic nerve.
