Let’s say that a child suffered damage to his brachial plexus nerves, the shoulder’s nerves. This can cause slowed development and meeting pediatric milestones. In some cases, it could even result in permanent damage to the child to not function properly. You might recognize some of the symptoms of the condition at birth. If a child suffers paralysis, it will range anywhere from partial paralysis to complete paralysis. No matter what, you should get this treated as soon as possible because a failure to treat it can lead to long-term paralysis.
