Things You Should Know About Paralysis Treatment
Paralysis could be one of the most horrific conditions that a human body can be affected with. A paralyzed 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. Diplegia and hemiplegia are two of the most serious forms of paralysis. Diplegia refers often only affects both arms or both legs, it can extend to both sides of the face as well. Hemiplegia is often characterized by a loss of strength and mobility on one side of the body.
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
Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic and often disabling disease of the central nervous system. This can result in paralysis.
- Head Injury
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 to 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.
Causes of Paralysis?
In Brain stroke brain heals with the help of its natural healing process known as Neuroplasticity. Paralysis can be further classified into two categories like Brain Stroke and Spinal Injury. Therefore, two types of Spinal Injury are Complete and Incomplete Spinal Injury (SI). During initial 6 months of brain stroke a paralysis patient condition improves because of neuroplasticity. As a result, this recovery period of neuroplasticity slows down. Therefore, it is important for a patient to work on the brain for muscle mobility.
Types of Paralysis
For instance, 90% of paralysis happens when blood supply to the brain is blocked because of a blood clot in other words Ischemic Brain Stroke or when bleeding into the brain occurs because of blood vessel bursting in other words (Hemorrhagic Brain Stroke). But other 10% of paralysis is caused by Spinal Injury or other medical conditions like GB Syndrome, Polio and Poison etc.
The symptoms of paralysis are different in each patient. It depends upon the area and the damage in Brain and Spinal cord. Therefore, paralysis patient shows symptoms like:
- Loss of muscle control.
- Unable to use arms and legs properly.
- Weakened eye sight.
- Difficulty in eating.
- Loss of balance or walking.
- Loss of control in urine and stool.
- Slow speech.
At Sai Sanjivani in addition we use the natural healing process of the brain to stimulate its functions with the help of neuroplasticity. Therefore, our paralysis patient regains strength. Range of motion and movement in legs and arm within initial month of treatment.
