Causes of Paralysis
Paralysis is a medical condition in which a person loses control of part of his or her body. It is typically the result of damage of the spinal cord or peripheral nerves.
Paralysis also comes in different types. Medical experts categorize paralysis in the following ways:
- Complete paralysis: occurs when a patient loses full control over and feelings in an affected area.
- Partial or incomplete: occurs when a person retains some control over and feelings in an affected body area.
- Localized paralysis: happens when a particular body, like the face, hand, or feet, becomes paralyzed.
- Generalized paralysis: happens when different body parts are paralyzed, depending on where a patient’s spinal cord or brain is injured.
