Paralysis is when a person loses control of muscle movement in a part of the body. It's often caused by damage to the nervous system or brain. Therapy, surgery, and other health interventions are often helpful to individuals suffering from paralysis. If you experience sudden paralysis in any part of the body, seek immediate medical care at a nearby Carbon Health.
Paralysis can be caused by damage to the nervous system, which includes the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. The main causes of paralysis can vary depending on the location and extent of the damage, but may include stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, infections such as polio or meningitis, autoimmune disorders, and neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's disease.
