Why
Paraplegic:

Paraplegia is a type of paralysis that primarily affects lower-body movement. People with paraplegia may be unable to move their legs, feet, or abdomen voluntarily.

People who have paraplegia will have mobility issues and may need to use a wheelchair. However, long-term treatment options for paraplegia exist to help reduce symptoms and complications

Diagnosis

There are many symptoms that can occur in paraplegia. Sometimes, these symptoms will change over time, or even from day to day.

People with paraplegia usually have an injury to the brain or spinal cord that prevents signaling to the lower body. The loss of signaling causes paralysis of the lower body.
