Erb’s Palsy is usually detected soon after birth. Signs include:
- the affected arm is limp, and the baby holds it to the side of their body, bending it at the elbow
- partial or full paralysis of the arm
- lack of sensation in the affected area
- decreased motor function in upper arm
- impaired circulatory, muscular, and nervous development
Mild cases of Erb’s Palsy may simply present as weakness in the affected arm or tenderness.
