Erb’s palsy is a disorder resulting from injury to the brachial plexus, a network of nerves that pass through the neck, armpit area, and into the arm. This condition often leads to partial or complete paralysis in the face, arm, or hand. This condition is most commonly linked to complications during birth, particularly dystocia, a term for challenging or unusually difficult labor. When an infant’s head and shoulders are improperly twisted during birth, excessive strain can be exerted on the brachial plexus. This strain may stretch or injure these nerves, resulting in paralysis. While these nerves can sometimes heal naturally, extensive physical therapy or surgery is often required.
