Paralysis is the loss of a muscle or entire muscle groups, usually as the result of physical injury or disease. It is most often caused by damage to a sensitive part of the central nervous system, such as the brain or especially the spinal cord. It can occur across the entire body (globally), in a certain region of the body determined by muscle group (locally), or follow a set pattern, such as hemiplegia, which affects one side of the body. It is crucial to have a Bettendorf Personal Injury Lawyer assist you, if you have suffered a form of paralysis in an accident.
The Link Between Paralysis and Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal cord injury is linked to paralysis along with other head and neck injuries involving the central nervous system. Spinal cord injuries, especially those involving the lower back and spine, can result in paraplegia, or the complete paralysis of the lower portion of the body. Quadriplegia, or the loss of some or all function in all four limbs, usually occurs after a major injury to the upper spine or neck region of the body.
Those suffering from paralysis use medical tools such as wheelchairs and standing frames to retain mobility and a better standard of living.
