Paralysis refers to the temporary or permanent loss of voluntary muscle movement in a body part or area.
People may experience local, generalized, partial or complete paralysis.
Paralysis is the loss of voluntary muscle function in one or more parts of the body due to damage to the nervous system.

  • central nervous system (CNS), which includes the brain and spinal cord.
  • peripheral nervous system (PNS), which consists of nerves outside the CNS

Paralysis occurs when nerve signals are disrupted by damage to the nerves, spinal cord or brain.


Symptoms vary depending on the type and cause of the problem. The most common symptom of paralysis is loss of muscle function in one or more parts of the body.
