About Erb's Palsy
Erb's palsy is a disorder related to brachial plexus injury. The brachial plexus is a bundle of nerves that extends from the spinal cord through the shoulder and into the arm. If an infant's shoulder is stretched awkwardly during childbirth, this may cause damage to the brachial plexus, resulting in Erb's palsy and the following symptoms:
- Loss of muscle control in the arm, hand or wrist
- Partial or total paralysis
- Numbness in the affected limb
In mild cases, infants suffering from Erb's palsy will be able to recover within the first three to four months of their lives with a limited amount of physical therapy. In more severe cases, however, surgery and extensive physical therapy may be required. The most severe forms of Erb's palsy cannot be corrected unless immediate surgical reconnection is successfully performed.
