Our user asked: "i have numbness in my arm and finger tips stemming from a rhomboid injury. i've been given exercises to do, but i wonder if the numbness means i have permanent damage?"
 
Ask a PT Response: "Numbness doesn't necessarily mean you have permanent damage to a nerve. Impingement and acute injury to a nerve could be contributing to the numbness as well. The rhomboid muscle is innervated by the dorsal scapular nerve (C5). A nerve conduction velocity test can be conducted to determine the extent and severity of injury to a nerve. Perhaps you could have further discussion with your MD or PT in regards to the extent of your injury."
