Erb's Palsy in Babies

Causes and Symptoms

Erb's palsy is caused by an injury to the brachial plexus nerve at birth and is usually immediately apparent. This nerve is located near the neck and controls motion and feeling of the hand, arm, and fingers. Erb's palsy can be caused by excessive pressure on the head and neck during birth or by pulling on the shoulders as the baby exits the birth canal. Symptoms include impaired movement and weakness or paralysis of the hand, fingers, and arm. Gentle massaging and range of motion therapy can help heal a mild case of Erb's palsy, while surgery or tendon transplant can treat more severe cases.
