Erb’s palsy or Erb–Duchenne palsy is a paralysis of the arm caused by injury to the upper group of the arm’s main nerves, specifically the severing of the upper trunk C5–C6 nerves. Physiotherapy can be required for severe cases to accompany surgery, or for mild cases to work them through strengthening the area and healing on their own. Examples of physical therapy exercises may include: Gentle stretching exercises. Sensory stimulation. Surely visit a good neurologist or hospitals like NIMHANS for proper treatment
