Paraplegia is a condition that leaves a person unable to voluntarily move the lower parts of his or her body, such as legs, feet and toes. There are two types of paraplegia: complete and incomplete. Each paraplegic’s individual circumstances will vary, but incomplete paraplegia describes a condition where a person has feeling with little or no movement, or has movement with little or no feeling. A person without feeling in or movement of his or her legs is considered to have complete paraplegia.
Regardless of type, paraplegia leaves victims facing an uncertain future wrought with costly medical procedures, ongoing rehabilitation, home modifications and in-home care. Even the best-case scenario — regaining feeling or movement after incomplete paralysis — will require an immense amount of resources.
