The basics of Erb’s palsy
Erb’s palsy is a birth injury that results in paralysis of the infant’s arm. This happens when an injury to the arm’s main group of nerves cuts off the signals from the spinal cord to the shoulder, arm and hand. While this condition can occur as a result of a hard fall or injury at any age, it most commonly occurs during childbirth, when the shoulder does not pass through the birth canal soon enough after the head.
The condition presents many challenges, some of which are similar to those of cerebral palsy, while others are unique to this condition, including:
Without the proper treatment, these challenges can impact your child’s quality of life. With unwavering commitment, Stipe Law Firm works to ensure that your child gets the treatment he or she needs.
