What is Erb’s Palsy?

Erb’s Palsy, also known as Brachial Plexus Palsy, is loss of mobility and sensation in the fingers, hands and arms as a result of the damaged nerves.  Sometimes during childbirth, the baby’s shoulders become stuck behind the pubic bone of the mother. This position may lead to excessive pulling during pregnancy, injuring the baby’s brachia plexus nerves, resulting in Erb’s Palsy. When your child suffers an injury during birth due to negligence on behalf of your healthcare provider, you need to act fast. Your child may be entitled to thousands of dollars for his injuries, lost wages, medical bills and long term care.

There are four types of Erb’s Palsy:

  • Neuroma: scar tissue from the injury has formed around the nerves and is now disrupting their signals to other parts of the body.
  • Neurapraxia: the nerves are damaged but not torn.
  • Avulsion: the nerves and the spine are not connected.
  • Rupture: although the nerves are torn, they remain connected to the spine.

The common symptoms that lead to a diagnosis of Erb’s Palsy are:

  • Limp arm(s).
  • Reduced range of motion in the hands or arms.
  • No flexing in the arms or legs when the baby is startled.
  • The baby is unable to keep their elbow flexed and against their body.
  • Limited grip strength.
