Paralysis and How We Care For It

Paralysis is a loss of voluntary muscle function due to strokes or spinal cord injuries. Paralysis affects the function of a specific or widespread part of the body. It can be localized or generalized depending on winch part of the spinal cord is damaged. Paralysis can be partial or complete, and temporary or permanent as a result form the quickness of treatment, severeness, and rehabilitation.

Paralysis is divided into two types: Paraplegia which involves both legs, and quadriplegia, which affects all limbs. Approximately 1 in 50 Americans, or 5.4 million people, have some form of paralysis.

Common causes of paralysis include:

  • Strokes
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Birth defects like spina bifida
  • Sclerosis
  • Bell’s palsy causes temporary facial paralysis
  • Guillain-Barré syndrome

The principal symptom of paralysis is numbness, tingling, and not being able to move libs and other parts of the body voluntarily.

Physical, occupational, and speech therapy can treat the symptoms of paralysis and provide exercises, and adaptive and assistive devices to improve function. These rehabilitation services can help people with all types of paralysis live with modified or functional independence and enjoy a better quality of life.

Other care depends on the cause of paralysis and how it affects you. Signature can assist and train you with rehabilitation along with:

  • Adaptive equipment that allows you to feed yourself or drive.
  • Assistive equipment, such as wheelchairs, scooters, crutches, and canes.
  • Orthotic/prosthetic devices, such as braces.
  • Voice-activated technology for computers, lighting systems, and phones.
