Causes of Paralysis
In paralysis a person loses the capacity of voluntary movement in some or all part of the body. The most difficult part of paralysis is when the person has to become totally dependent on someone else to finish most of the routine tasks.
The loss of voluntary muscle is mostly accompanied by numbness or loss of sensation in the affected part. Complete and partial are two of the most serious forms of paralysis.
Paralysis is always caused due to impairment of the central nervous system, i.e the brain, spinal cord or due to impairment of the peripheral nervous system. The most common causes of paralysis are as follows:
A stroke occurs when the blood supply to the brain is suddenly blocked or when a blood vessel in the brain bursts.
Spinal Cord Injury
When the spinal cord is damaged because of the neck or spine injury, the brain cannot transmit signals to the muscles resulting in Paralysis.
Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic and often disabling disease of the central nervous system. This can result in paralysis.
When a part of the brain that controls specific muscles is damaged because of head injury, paralysis occurs.
The signs and symptoms of paralysis will depend upon what caused the paralysis as well as what parts of the body are affected. Loss of movement and feeling can be sudden and immediate, such as with trauma or stroke, or it can begin with muscle weakness and gradually progress. The common symptoms of paralysis are as follows:
- The person cannot feel when something touches him/her or even when someone else touches him/her.
- The person cannot feel heat or cold. Numbness to weather is common.
- The person also does not feel pain in the affected part.
- An impairment of vision is also seen.
In spite of the various treatments available, Ayurveda has proved or stands to be one of the most effective treatments for the best possible recovery in Paralysis condition. Ayurvedic medicines work on the root cause of paralysis; it works directly on the nervous tissue to stimulate it and develop an alternate route for conductance of electrical signals. Ayurvedic treatment for Paralysis helps to cope up effectively and stops from occurring again. The treatment works only on your nervous tissue; it helps the body to develop an alternate route for electrical conductance to the limb.
