Paralysis is one of the most serious injuries that a person can experience. If paralysis is permanent, it will leave one facing the need for a lifetime of care, which may include constant medical attention, assistive devices, modification of the home to suit a wheelchair, medication, and more. It may be impossible to return to the same line of work or to return to work at all. All told, the cost of care for paraplegia or quadriplegia can add up to millions of dollars over one’s life.

Paralysis is caused when the central or peripheral nervous systems sustain damage. The spinal cord or other nerves in the body may be damaged as a result of physical trauma, or paralysis may occur after a stroke or due to tumor growth. Once nerve tissue is damaged, it cannot grow back. Very minor damage may heal, but if the spinal cord or other nerves are torn, the possibility of regaining mobility and feeling is nearly impossible.
