What is Paralysis?

Paralysis is a condition in which motor functions are lost in one or more muscles. Paralysis can also cause loss of feeling (sensory loss) in the affected area. The muscle control gets lost due to damage to a specific part of the brain which used to control it. The damage to the brain is caused due to a stroke or a hemorrhage. As per a study, paralysis affects 1 in 50 people and approximately 5.4 million people worldwide. It is concluded that there is a 40% hike in paralysis patients compared to previous estimates.

When paralysis occurs, the first six months are essential as it is at that time the brain heals itself and creates new connections that were damaged. This brain’s healing process that happens within the first six months is called Neuroplasticity. If paralysis is not treated in time, it can cause various complications such as difficulty in breathing, Pressure sores, depression, and anxiety. However, with the help of herbal medicines that stimulate the brain, Ayurveda can treat the condition completely. Early intervention of Ayurveda treatment maximizes the chances of recovery from paralysis.

Timely Treatment is Possible with Early Diagnosis!

Paralysis is a disease that requires immediate as well as long-term treatment, and there is no option of leaving it untreated. Paralysis causes hindrance to blood flow, breathing, working of the organs, speaking or swallowing, sexual responses, or controlling the urge to go to the bathroom, depending on where you’re paralyzed and how bad it is.

Ayurveda has proven to be the most curative approach to neurological disorders like paralysis. Ayurveda believes that the mainline of the paralysis treatment is to focus on normalizing the flow of Prana Vayu.

Symptoms of paralysis
The major symptom of paralysis is the incapacity to move a part of your body or failure to move the entire body. Paralysis can begin suddenly or gradually. Some other major symptoms are –

  • Gradual loss of muscle control
  • Difficulty in swallowing
  • Unable to use arms & legs properly
  • Loss of balance
  • Loss of bladder & bowel movement
  • Walking with a limp
  • Slurred speech
  • Sensory loss

Causes of Paralysis

Numerous problems can cause Paralysis, and these problems are classified into intentional or accidental poisoning, illness or injury, and damage to the nervous system, which controls the muscles. Stroke is the most common cause of Paralysis that affects the brain’s ability to communicate with the spinal cord; this is followed by head injury, spinal cord injury, and multiple sclerosis.

Paralysis caused by Nervous Tissue Damage
Nervous tissue damage is the most common cause of Paralysis in which corticospinal tracts and associated motor tracts in one hemisphere of the brain get damaged. This condition is caused due to a blood clot or a cerebral haemorrhage. Brain tumors can also cause Paralysis, and their severity increases gradually over a certain period.

Paralysis caused by Muscle Tissue Damage
In this condition, Paralysis is caused by diseases such as poliomyelitis and polyneuritis, which attack the motor neurons of our body. Poliomyelitis affects the cell bodies and spinal motor neurons, while polyneuritis affects their peripheral process. Primary changes in muscle caused by muscular dystrophy can also lead to Paralysis.

Paralysis caused by Metabolic Disease
Certain intoxications, endocrine gland disease, and metabolic defects can cause muscular weakness and disturb metabolism, which leads to Paralysis.

Other causes of Paralysis include:

  • Acute Flaccid Myelitis
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
  • Brain injury
  • Brachial Plexus injury
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Lyme Disease
  • Neurofibromatosis
  • Post-polio syndrome
  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyradiculoneuropathy

Types of Paralysis

Paralysis occurs due to damage to the central nervous system that interferes with the communication between the motor cortex and your limbs and upper body. Paralysis results in loss of control over our body parts and normally a change in muscle tone and often loss of sensation.

Paralysis occurs primarily due to brain stroke or spinal trauma as all our signals in the human body are carried through nerves located in the spine. Many people are aware of paralysis and the various causes, but they are unaware of the different categorizations and what they mean.

In paralysis, the leading cause is the inability of the signals to travel normally from the brain to desired parts of the body through the spine. The various forms of paralysis are caused based on the location of the injury in and around the spine.

Quadriplegia: This kind of paralysis affects all four limbs and the trunk of our body. Quadriplegia occurs due to a spinal injury that has occurred above the thoracic vertebra.

Paraplegia: In this condition, paralysis causes loss of movement in both legs. This is caused when there is a spinal injury below the thoracic vertebra.

Monoplegia: In this condition, paralysis occurs in one of the limbs of the body, which is caused due to damage to localized areas of the peripheral nervous system or the corresponding parts of the motor cortex.

Diplegia: This paralysis affects symmetrical parts of the body, normally both the arms and both the sides of the face. Diplegia is the common cause of crippling in children who have cerebral palsy.

Hemiplegia: In this condition, paralysis results in loss of movement, affecting one side of the body. Hemiplegia is commonly caused due to stroke that affects one of the hemispheres in the brain.
