Paraplegia and quadriplegia is a permanent paralysis of the body caused by injury or disease affecting the spinal cord.
Paraplegia involves loss of sensation and movement in the legs in part or the entire trunk. Quadriplegia normally means loss of sensation or movement in all four limbs and the trunk.
While the most common causes of damage to the spinal cord causing paraplegia or quadriplegia is trauma such as motor vehicle accidents, motorbike accidents, falls, sports injuries, gunshot wounds, assaults and other injuries. Generally speaking, the higher the injury on the spinal cord, the greater the paralysis.
