Paralysis Information Center

When most people think of paralysis they think of spinal cord injuries. This is just one of the many types and causes of paralysis. Paralysis can be of the whole body or just part of the body such as the hand or face. It can be regional such as one side of the body after a stroke. It can be permanent or temporary. It is our desire to cover every type of paralysis and their causes and treatments on this site. We also will strive to keep up with the current research on paralysis.
