How Erb’s Palsy Occurs

When an infant’s shoulder becomes trapped behind the mother’s pelvic bone, the infant may sustain Erb’s palsy, or a brachial plexus injury. Doctors must act quickly to relieve the complication, technically known as shoulder dystocia. In some cases, an inexperienced doctor may worsen an injury by trying to forcibly remove a child whose shoulder is trapped.

Erb’s palsy is nerve damage resulting from damage to the brachial plexus due to the shoulder being stuck while the child is in-utero. The brachial plexus is a network of nerve fibers in the armpit that allows the arm to move properly.
