Are There Different Types Of Paralysis?

Depending on the type of damage and the position of the injury along the spinal cord, individuals can suffer different injuries.

  • Paraplegia: The injured individual suffers loss of movement or sensation to the arms.
  • Quadriplegia: The injured individual suffers loss of movement or sensation to both the arms and legs.
