This comprehensive guide sheds light on the causes, symptoms, and treatment options available for individuals navigating life with paraplegia.

What is paraplegia?

Paraplegia is a condition characterized by the loss of motor and sensory function in the lower half of the body due to spinal cord injury. The spinal cord一a critical component of the central nervous system一becomes damaged, disrupting communication between the brain and the body's lower extremities.

The symptoms of paraplegia vary based on the extent and location of the spinal cord injury. Common paraplegia symptoms include the following:

  • Loss of sensation - the absence of sensation in the lower part of the body.
  • Loss of motor function - inability to walk or stand without assistance and other mobility challenges.
  • Muscle weakness
  • Impaired reflexes
  • Bladder and bowel dysfunction
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Respiratory complications and reduced lung function
  • Spasticity or muscle spasms
  • Orthostatic hypotension - a sudden drop in blood pressure upon standing.
  • Pressure sores or bedsores.

These symptoms profoundly impact daily life, necessitating adaptive strategies and specialized care.
