Paralysis results from damage to the nerves. This could mean damage to the nerves in the muscles, or damage to the nerves in the spinal cord. Where the spinal cord is injured, you may experience partial or full paralysis in the muscles below the level of the injury.
Common causes of paralysis include:
Head, neck, and spinal injuries may lead to full body or partial paralysis. These types of injuries most commonly result from trauma – examples include a fall from height and road traffic accidents.
Hypoxia occurs where the body does not receive a sufficient oxygen supply. There is an increased risk of hypoxia in children born pre-term, as the lungs may not yet be fully developed.
Medical negligence could result in paralysis under many circumstances. For example, the late diagnosis or misdiagnosis of a spinal tumour could cause paralysis, as well as a mistake made during surgery.
