Common Causes of Paralysis Injuries
Paralysis injuries can occur by any means, but are most common in slip-and-fall cases, sports injuries, construction site incidents, and other work-related accidents. Anything that results in serious trauma to the back, lower spine, head, or neck could potentially harm the vertebra, thus resulting in paralysis. These types of injuries might include falls, stuck-between incidents, violent attacks, blunt-force trauma, and more.
What Are the Different Types of Paralysis?
There are many different types of paralysis, and depending on the severity and location of your injuries, the type of paralysis you experience may vary.
- Paraplegia: Paraplegia affects the lower portion of the body, usually from the waist down, and may also result in sexual dysfunction, infertility, and lack of bladder control.
- Quadriplegia: Quadriplegia, also called tetraplegia, is a paralysis that affects a person from the neck down, rendering them largely immobile.
- Triplegia: Triplegia prevents the affected person from feeling or controlling one side of their body. The paralysis often affects the person’s arm or leg on the functioning side of their body.
- Monoplegia: Monoplegia affects a small portion of the body, like a limb, rendering it without feeling or function.
- Hemiplegia: Hemiplegia often occurs after a stroke or as the result of cerebral palsy, and affects one side of the body, much like triplegia.
