Shoulder dystocia is a specific case of obstructed labour whereby after the delivery of the head, the anterior shoulder of the infant cannot pass below, or requires significant manipulation to pass below, the pubic symphysis. It is diagnosed when the shoulders fail to deliver shortly after the fetal head. Shoulder dystocia is an obstetric emergency, and fetal demise can occur if the infant is not delivered, due to compression of the umbilical cord within the birth canal. Definition - Vaginal cephalic delivery that requires specialist obstetric manoeuvres to deliver the fetus after the delivery of the head has occurred and gentle downward traction has failed (Resnick 1980)
One characteristic of a minority of shoulder dystocia deliveries is the turtle sign, which involves the appearance and retraction of the fetal head (analogous to a turtle withdrawing into its shell), and the erythematous (red), puffy face indicative of facial flushing. This occurs when the baby's shoulder is obstructed by the maternal pelvis.

Excessive lateral and upward traction in effort to progress delivery results in over stretching and avulsion of cervical nerve roots on the right.
My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: Georgia
Can someone please tell me how to figure up approx. settlement amount for a shoulder injury?
How many weeks is payable for the injury and the IR is set at 15.
Thank you for this info. I am very frustrated. I think what I have is an injury or strain to my rotator cuff although I wasnt sure. It had started out with always feeling like a massive knot of muscle under my scalpula that was always crampy. With treatment at ciro he said that it was adhering to my scalpula and also pulling two ribs out all the time. I think I worked out through this for so long because there wasnt bad pain. Now I have no strength at all in my shoulder and it always seems tight or knoted. I have been stretching it every day and also trying to strengthen it by doing light rotator cuff exercises like the ones mentioned above. What Im not sure about is this.. should I give this injury complete rest for awhile a thing I find hard to do or should I continue to work on it and strengthen it more. The one hesitation I have about that is that even doing one rep of a strengthining excersise causes the "knoted" area to burn. Last but not least in my two years of obviously over-training I have some very inflamed tendons around the middle of my hip, like fire when I even touch them, and my hip flexers are shot. Im assuming from doing my cardio daily not to sure. I do see a massage therapist weekly for these areas hasnt gotten me anywhere yet and I do make sure I always stretch them out good. Is this also something that I completely need to lay off and rest from all cardio and things or can I work through this? Thank you so much if you can help me with any insight to this.
