Complete or partial paralysis may be caused by a spinal cord injury or a broken neck, according to MedlinePlus. Coping with the loss of function in one or more limbs is something that people who have not been paralyzed may not understand. So, to say that the coping process is difficult would be an understatement.

The Consequences of Paralysis Can Change a Person’s Life
Paralysis may confine you to a wheelchair or restrict the use of your limbs. From a health perspective, this could put you at risk for:
- Problems related to circulation and blood pressure.
- Bedsores, which could get infected and cause more serious health problems.
- Blood clots, including deep vein thrombosis.
- Pain in extremities related to poor circulation.
- Sepsis, which may result from a serious infection.
Beyond a physical health perspective, paralysis may also lead to:
- Depression, especially in the immediate aftermath of the injury.
- Loss of many movement-related activities you once enjoyed doing.
- Loss of financial independence.
- Loss of sexual function.
You or your loved one may be facing a long, difficult road to recovery. If your injury was caused by somebody else, then you might be entitled to financial assistance as you navigate your comeback trail.
