Resolution of Infantile Erb's Palsy Utilizing Chiropractic Treatment

A 5-wk-old infant boy suffered from a limp left arm. Birth records were obtained to verify the diagnosis.. The patient received specific chiropractic adjustments to the mid-cervical. The Erb's palsy resolved with only a mild residual "waiters tip" deformity within 2 months. In this case, chiropractic adjustment is suggested as an effective treatment for Erb's palsy. Further research is warranted to understand the efficacy of chiropractic care.
