Paralysis of limbs is usually caused by nerve damage in the nervous system and the spinal cord. Paralysis causes the muscles to become unresponsive to the commands sent by the brain, or in cases, the brain centre itself responsible for movement to the limbs becomes incapable of controlling them. This condition or a patient, wherein he or she is unable to move his or her limbs is known as paralysis.
Paralysis can be classified as:
Localized; in this type of paralysis a certain part of the body is paralysed, for instance one or both hands or the face
Generalized paralysis means a larger area of the body is affected for instance the entire left half of the body or the entire lower extremities (below the waist)
There are different types of paralysis:
Monoplegia – paralysis of one limb
Hemiplegia – paralysis of one arm and one leg on one side of the body
Paraplegia – paralysis of both legs and sometimes the pelvis and some of the lower body
Tetraplegia / quadriplegia – paralysis of both arms and both legs
Paralysis can be caused by stroke, head injury, spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and conditions such as the Guillain-Barre syndrome.
