What Is Erb’s Palsy?
Erb’s Palsy is also sometimes called Brachial Plexus Palsy. The brachial plexus area is where the neck joins the shoulder and consists of a network of nerves that provides movement and sensation to the arm, hand and fingers. If the baby’s shoulder becomes impacted or stuck on the mother’s pelvis during the baby’s birth, the nerves can be caused to tear or stretch through improper maneuvers during delivery.
Erb’s Palsy can cause paralysis, limpness or loss of sensation in the arm or shoulder. The symptoms of Erb’s Palsy vary depending upon the extent of the nerve damage. A baby with Brachial Plexus Palsy may experience no sensation or muscle control in the hand or arm, little or no wrist and hand control, arm paralysis, paralysis of shoulder or elbow muscles, limp hand and fingers, facial paralysis, inability to crawl without intervention and/or the inability to sit up without assistance.
