Cerebral Palsy/Erb’s Palsy

Erb’s palsy is a specific condition that can occur to a newborn as the result of a birth injury such as shoulder dystocia or brachial plexus. Brachial plexus and shoulder dystocia are injuries that involve a specific nerve group that stems from the spinal cord. Specifically, Erb’s palsy affects a baby’s ability to rotate, move and flex the arm. Depending on the severity of the injury, the results could last a lifetime. Have questions?
