Birth Injury & Physical Developmental Delays
Not all birth injuries are readily apparent at birth, especially if a child suffers from a brain injury. An injury to the brain may not manifest itself until months later when a baby starts to miss developmental milestones like rolling over or crawling. It is important to let your child’s medical provider know if your child fails to reach physical developmental milestones. A doctor is the only one who can diagnose a birth injury. If your child has received a birth injury-related diagnosis, please call us. We’re here for you.
Physical Symptoms of Birth Injuries
Evidence of a birth injury may not appear right away. In some cases, it may take months, or even longer, for physical symptoms of a birth injury to appear, especially if a brain injury was suffered. Usually this comes in the form of the child failing to reach physical developmental milestones. Physical developmental delays may include:
- Lack of muscle coordination
- Weakness or paralysis in the arms or legs
- Difficulty or inability to:
- Roll over
- Sit up
- Hold or grasp objects
This list is not exhaustive. If you have concerns about your child failing to reach physical developmental milestones you should consult a doctor. Only a doctor can accurately diagnose a birth injury.
