Paralysis is a condition in which a person is unable to make voluntary movements. It can be a result of an injury, stroke, or nerve disorder. There are several cases of paralysis in which some part of the body is paralyzed (partial paralysis), or sometimes the entire body is (complete paralysis).
What causes paralysis?
The major cause of paralysis is disturbances in the nervous system of the body. Our nervous system works as the main communication channel between the brain, and other parts of the body. Signals sent by the brain are transmitted through it, such as making your hands move or walking. So when our central nervous system suffers some disturbances, which may be caused due to an injury, stroke, and sometimes genetics, it fails to send signals further, resulting in paralysis.
