What Are Paraplegia & Quadriplegia?
Paraplegia and quadriplegia are two types of paralysis, which is a loss of the ability to move part or most of the body. Paralysis can result in a lack of sensation in certain areas of the body, loss of bowel or bladder control, and spasms or exaggerated reflexes.
Paraplegia and quadriplegia are often the result of serious spinal cord injuries but can also be caused by an illness. Paraplegia is paralysis of the legs and lower body, while quadriplegia is paralysis of both upper and lower parts of the body. Quadriplegia is particularly severe because it can affect the victim’s ability to breathe, cough, and clear their lungs. Many quadriplegics require ventilators to help them breathe.
The Impact of Paraplegia & Quadriplegia
Paralysis is a life-long condition and there is no cure. That said, people suffering from paraplegia and quadriplegia can improve their mobility, their independence, and their quality of life with therapy, medical treatment, and medical devices.
After developing paralysis, many people are unable to return to their original line of work or are unable to work at all. Many people also need support for day-to-day activities like cooking, bathing, and getting around.
