Due to paralysis, your loved one will not be able to feel any sensation in the affected part. Paralysis can affect one side of the body, a condition known as hemiplegia. If it affects both sides of the body, it is known as diplegia.
Paralysis can be caused due to various reasons. The most common reasons are any form of injury that your loved one suffers on the spinal cord or head, a stroke, or multiple sclerosis.
At care24, we offer a host of care services that includes a team of doctors, nurses, attendants, and physiotherapists.
