Frequently asked questions

Paraplegia can result from an injury to the spinal cord that may damage the nerve fibers found within the spinal cord. Primarily, such type of injuries result from car or motorcycle accidents, but may also result from slip and fall accidents as well as sporting injuries.

There are two types of paraplegia - complete and incomplete. In Complete paraplegia a person loses both feeling and movement below his or her injury, while in case of incomplete paraplegia a person maintains some movement or feeling below the injury.

Paraplegia may result in symptoms like persisting pain, a loss of sensation, paralysis, loss of bowel control, spasms, difficulty breathing, and a loss of sexual function.
