Paralysis is the word which means the inability of muscle or group of muscles which helps us to move voluntarily. Muscles are controlled by messages conducted by our brain which trigger the movement of muscles. When any part of our brain is damaged after a stroke, messaging among our brain and muscles might not work properly. The term paralysis is derived from the Greek word which means disabling the nerves. It is a condition involving loss of muscles function in the body which is accompanied by sensory loss and also referred to as loss of feeling. The damage to the nervous system means that there is loss of motor function or sensory information.
Paralysis is usually on the side of the body opposite to the side of the brain which is damaged by the stroke, and which might affect any part of the body. We might experiences one-sided paralysis, which is identified as hemiplegia, or one-sided weakness, which is known as hemiparesis. Locked-in syndrome is an example of inconsiderable paralysis which leaves the stroke survivor from which we are unable to move any muscles except those muscles which control the eyes.
Causes of paralysis
There are many possible reasons that one might experiences temporary or permanent paralysis. It is usually as a result of damage to the spinal cord and many other parts of the nervous system. Some of the most important reasons for the cause of paralysis are follows:
A stroke is one of very serious medical condition which occurs when the blood supply of our brain is disturbed. Like all organs of our body our brain also needs a constant supply of blood and proper amount of oxygen and nutrients so that it could function properly. If the brain supply is restricted or stopped our brain cells began to die which can lead to brain damage and that often results in paralysis.
Head is the very sensitive part of our body a small injury may cause severe loss and can also cause brain damage. The surface of our brain can tear bruise as it bumps against the skull, damages the blood vessels and nerves. Paralysis occurs when any part of our brain which controls specific muscles when it is damaged throughout a severe head injury. Damage to the left side of brain can cause paralysis on the right side of the body and when damage occurs to the right side of the brain then paralysis occurs on the left side of the body.
Spinal cord injury
The spinal cord is a most important part of our central nervous system. It is a very thick bundle of nerves that runs from our brain, which goes down through our neck, spine and inside vertebrae canal.
Its foremost function is to transfer signals to and from our brain and body. For example, the spinal cord permits nerve signals, such as sensation of hot and cold, back to the brain.
If the neck or spine is injured, the spinal cord might be damaged. Which means the brain might no longer be able to transmit signals to the muscles, causing paralysis.
The exact position where the spinal injury occurs can have imperative effect on how unadorned and wide-ranging the paralysis is. The higher up of the spine the injury occurs, the poorer the paralysis will be. For example, an injury between the spines will usually cause paraplegia (paralysis of the lower limbs).
A neck injury, such as a broken neck, will frequently result in tetraplegia (paralysis in all four limbs, also known as quadriplegia), as well as damage of common lung functions, which means the person will need to use a ventilator to breathe.
The most common causes of spinal cord injuries are as follows:
• Motor vehicle accidents while driving
• Normal accidents while working
• Accidents throughout sports or other types of activities
• Sudden falls
• Paralysis caused by diseases rather than injuries
The nature of these causes means that most spinal cord injuries mostly occur in men (which accounts for 80% of all cases) and young generation. It is expected that half of all spinal cord injuries takes place in persons who are at the age 16 to 30 years.
It is a set of neurological conditions (those which affect the brain and nervous system of our body) and also which affect a child’s movement, control and co-ordination.
Cerebral palsy is mostly caused by the damage of brain that mostly occurs before, during or soon after birth. Some of the most prominent causes of cerebral palsy are as follows:
• The infection that takes place during early pregnancy
• A tough or premature birth of a child
• Bleeding in the brain of the baby
• Development of abnormal brain in the baby
The most unadorned type of cerebral palsy is known as spastic quadriplegia, where a person feels higher degree of muscles stiffness which is known as spasticity which effects on their limbs due to which they are unable to use them.
Symptoms of paralysis
Paralysis might accompany many other types of symptoms, which vary depending on the underlying diseases, disorders or conditions.
Symptoms of paralysis might occur along with the symptoms of nervous system. Some of them are as follows:
• Changes in mood, personality or behavior of a person
• Loss of consciousness and confusion for a short-term moment
• Difficulty with the memory, writing, reading and thinking
The other symptoms that might occur along with symptoms of paralysis are as follows:
• Problem of constipation
• suffering from Fever
• Loss of hearing
• Changes in the vision and loss vision
• Severe pain in neck
• Increasing of headache
Thoughtful symptoms that might indicate life-threatening conditions are as follows:
Unexpected paralysis might indicate an emergency medical disorder such as stroke, when the blood supply that transports oxygen to the brain is permanently blocked. Spinal cord injuries are the very serious cause for paralysis. Pursue instant medical care if you are with anyone that might have any of the following symptoms:
• Changes in the level of consciousness or attentiveness, such as passing out or unresponsiveness
• Changes in the mental status or changes in the sudden behavior, such as confusion, delirium etc.
• Problem in breathing and respiratory system such as shortness of breath, difficulty in breathing, strenuous of breathing, breathless, or unpleasant etc.
Treatments of paralysis
Currently there is no cure for permanent paralysis. The intention of treatment is to help a person adjust to life with paralysis by creating them as independent as possible. Another most important goal of treatment is to address health problems and associated difficulties that might arise from paralysis, such as pressure ulcers. Various treatment options, aids, and doctors treatments available for people with paralysis such as dr. sanjeev’s treatment for paralysis, Dr. Rupali basu’s treatments, and Dr. Madhu Sudan Aggarwal’s treatments etc. There are many more treatments also available such as allopathic, homeopathic, unani, herbal, and ayurvedic etc. out of which we have created an effective formula with the help of modern science and technology for treating from paralysis. Ambery paralysis oil is our one of the best and the leading product for the treatment for paralysis. As everyone knows that physical treatment is one of the best treatments among all the treatment. After massage with ambery paralysis oil a patient should prefer physical activities which will be very beneficial for the treatment of paralysis.
