Erb’s palsy is a form of brachial plexus injury and results from damage to the nerves that supply the muscles of the arm. Brachial plexus injuries can cause partial to complete paralysis of the shoulder, upper arm, elbow, forearm, wrist, hand or fingers. There are varying levels of severity of brachial plexus injury depending upon whether the affected nerve is actually detached from the spinal cord, ruptured, overstretched or compressed by scar tissue.

Treatment for a brachial plexus injury includes:

  • Physical and occupational therapy
  • Surgery, splinting, and casting
  • Electrical stimulation

Assessment and treatment should be initiated as soon as possible. Typically, an infant suffering from an obstetrical brachial plexus injury begins physical or occupational therapy in the first few weeks of life. These children are usually referred to a specialist or a team of specialists that might include a neurologist, an orthopedic surgeon, a plastic surgeon or a neurosurgeon to further assess the injury using a variety of tests and to implement effective treatment.
