Paralysis Causes and Injuries

Paralysis means that a person is unable to move certain parts of the body or the whole body. Paralysis is a result of spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, stroke, or disease. There are 14 kinds of paralysis. The two main categories are

  • Complete Paralysis: Like paraplegia or quadriplegia, people lose the ability to control everything except the trunk of their body, sometimes. Complete paralysis almost always means dependent living.
  • Incomplete Paralysis: There are five subsequent categories of incomplete paralysis. Suffering from incomplete paralysis means that there are only parts of the body in which you can not control: anterior cord syndrome, central cord syndrome, Brown-Sequart syndrome, and cauda equina lesion,

Other 13 include:

  • Monoplegia
  • Diplegia
  • Hemiplegia
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia
  • Flaccid Paralysis
  • Facial Paralysis
  • Partial Paralysis
  • Sleep Paralysis
  • Periodic Paralysis
  • Todd’s Paralysis
  • Tick Paralysis
  • Alternating Hemiplegia

Each kind of paralysis is a result of either traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury. Car accidents are by far the most common way for someone to experience a personal injury to the brain of the spine. However, other kinds of accidents include truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, diving accidents, falling from heights, firearm accidents, sports accidents, or medical malpractice.
