Erb’s Palsy, also known as Brachial Plexus Palsy, is an injury to the network of nerves (the brachial plexus) that supply feeling and control to the shoulders and arms. Brachial Plexus Palsy is an injury to the nerves in the neck and upper chest. The injury can result in a loss of movement and feeling in the arm, hand and fingers. This injury often occurs during childbirth if the baby's shoulders become stuck behind the mother's pubic bone, and the appropriate delivery techniques are not used.
The brachial plexus nerves can be injured when there is excessive pulling of the baby’s head during delivery. While some factors may increase the risk of injury; like high birth weight or breeched birth, Erb’s Palsy can also be the result of improper delivery methods by your doctor or medical team.
