What are the symptoms of Erb’s Palsy?

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.
