Types of Paralysis Resulting From Spinal Cord Injuries

Paralysis can result from different types of injuries, such as stroke or neurological disorders, as well as a traumatic injury to the spinal cord. When paralysis is caused by spinal cord injury, it can manifest in various forms, largely depending on the severity and location (level) of the injury. The types of paralysis include:

  1. Monoplegia: This type of paralysis affects one limb, usually an arm or a leg.
  2. Hemiplegia: Hemiplegia impacts one side of the body and typically stems from brain damage rather than spinal injuries.
  3. Paraplegia: Resulting from injuries to the lower spine, paraplegia affects both legs and, sometimes, the trunk.
  4. Quadriplegia (Tetraplegia): The most severe form, quadriplegia, results from injuries to the upper spine, affecting all four limbs and the body’s torso.

The True Cost of Living with Paralysis

The costs and challenges associated with paralysis extend far beyond health and medical-related expenses. They include:

  • Medical and Rehabilitation Costs: Emergency care, surgeries, ongoing treatment, physiotherapy, and occupational and mental health therapy can add up to staggering amounts.
  • Home and Lifestyle Modifications: Paralysis often requires making home modifications for wheelchair accessibility and investing in adaptive technology, significantly impacting one’s finances.
  • Loss of Income and Earning Capacity: Paralysis may have resulted in your inability to return to your former job or any occupation resulting in a total or partial loss to your future earning capacity.
  • Psychological Distress: The emotional toll of paralysis is immense. These injuries often lead to psychological challenges such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
