What Is Quadriplegia?
Quadriplegia is a severe form of paralysis that is caused by illness or injury to the spinal cord. Quadriplegia differs from paraplegia in that the individual suffers a partial or total loss of the use of all limbs and torso. This loss often includes the loss of both sensation and control. Paralysis is caused by damage to the spinal cord in the cervical region. This damage is typically caused by serious trauma from a motor vehicle injury, a fall from height or another devastating accident.
