Paraplegia, Quadriplegia

Paraplegia and Quadriplegia are caused by paralysis in the body. Paralysis, as defined by National Institutes of Health, is as follows:

Paralysis is the loss of muscle function in part of your body. It happens when something goes wrong with the way messages pass between your brain and muscles. Paralysis can be complete or partial. It can occur on one or both sides of your body. It can also occur in just one area, or it can be widespread. Paralysis of the lower half of your body, including both legs, is called paraplegia. Paralysis of the arms and legs is quadriplegia.”
