What is Paralysis?

Paralysis is the inability to move muscles on your own and with purpose. Paralysis can be a complete loss of movement known as plegia, or a significant weakness called paresis.

Paralysis is caused by injury or disease affecting the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord)
which means that the nerve signals sent to the muscles is interrupted.

Disturbance in the pathways between the brain and the muscles means that the muscles are not given the instructions to move as they would do normally. Our specialist neurological physiotherapists at SMART PHYSIOCARE commonly treat people with partial or total paralysis of their upper and lower limbs and trunk due to neurological
