PARALYSIS

Paralysis is the loss or impairment of voluntary muscular power. Paralysis can result from either diseases involving changes in the makeup of nervous or muscular tissue or those that are the result of metabolic disturbances that interfere with the function of nerves or muscles. Depending upon the cause, paralysis may affect a specific muscle group or region of the body, or a larger area may be involved. When only one side of the body is affected, the condition is known as hemiplegia. In other instances, both sides of the body may suffer the effects, leading to diplegia or bilateral hemiplegia. When only the lower limbs are affected by paralysis, it is called paraplegia. When all four limbs are affected, it is referred to as quadriplegia. The term palsy is sometimes used to refer to the loss of muscle power in a body part. There are several possible reasons that one may experience temporary or permanent paralysis. It is usually as a results of damage to the spinal cord or other parts of the nervous system and associated with:

  • Stroke
  • Trauma
  • Poliomyelitis
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Botulism
  • Spina bifida
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Guillain-Barré syndrome

Additionally, some medications may impact the function of the nerves and in rare cases have the potential to cause paralysis.
 

Classification

Paralysis can be categorized as either localized when a specific part of the body such as the face or hand is affected, or generalized when a large section of the body is affected, such as the entire lower body.There are also more specific terms to describe particular areas of the body that are affected.

  • Monoplegia is the paralysis of one limb.
  • Hemiplegia is the paralysis of the arm and leg on one side of the body.
  • Paraplegia is the paralysis of both legs and some other areas of the lower body, such as the pelvis.
  • Tetraplegia or quadriplegia is the paralysis of both arms and legs.
