Can It Be Treated With Stiff Paralysis For 15 Years?
Noon doctor, 20 years ago I once fell in a sitting position. My back often hurts after that. 5 years after that I was paralyzed and couldn’t walk. My body is stiff, stiff joints can not be rotated like a normal person. R n r nThe joints in my back and hips cannot move which makes me unable to sit. . r n r nWhether I am asking, if my joints are operated on, can my joints be normal again and I can walk again? r n r nThank you for the answers.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Paralysis is the loss of the ability to move muscles or certain parts of the body, either temporarily or permanently. The paralysis itself can be partial, in the sense that it can still move but is little or weak, or it can be total or not at all. This condition can also occur suddenly or gradually, depending on the underlying disease.
Among the causes of paralysis are:
Spinal cord injury. In the spine, there are nerves, one end of which is directly connected to the brain. These nerves also have branches that connect to the muscles of the arms and legs. If there is an abnormality in this nerve, then paralysis can occur. In your case, this is related to your history of falling in a position. Multiple sclerosis. A condition that occurs due to an abnormality in the immune system that attacks the body itself, to be precise on the nerve protective membrane. Guillain-Barre Syndrome. Similar to multiple sclerosis, with paralysis that rises from the tips of the legs.
Every paralysis has its own cause and in fact after 15 years, the possibility of being completely back to normal feels difficult. However, to avoid misunderstanding, you should check yourself again, between a neurologist or an orthopedist (orthopedist) for further testing. Your doctor may perform a reflex check using a reflex hammer, perform an X-ray or an MRI. Regarding the possibility in the future it would also be more appropriate if it was conveyed by those who examined it directly.
Meanwhile, among what you can try to do at home is practice little by little. Use props, and always ask for help from others to supervise or assist you in the training process. You can click on the following link to get more information about paralysis. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
