Types & Causes of Paralysis
Paralysis is a medical condition characterized by a loss of muscle function in a part of the body. It may be partial or total and may affect one side or region of the body or both sides of the body. It can affect a small or large area of the body. A person suffering from paralysis may have no feeling or ability to control the affected part of the body, depending on the severity of the condition. When paralysis affects the lower half of the body, including both legs, this is called paraplegia. When paralysis affects the entire body below the neck, this is called quadriplegia.
The following are potential causes of paralysis:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Construction site accidents
- Accidents involving heavy machinery
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck injuries
- Certain nerve and autoimmune diseases
- Workplace accidents
