Paraplegia (losing the use of limbs/extremities below the waist) is usually a result of a traumatic injury to the spinal cord or spinal cord nervous tissue. Paraplegia injuries are extremely dangerous and usually require surgery followed by physical therapy and a lifetime of assisted care. Many paraplegics lack the function to take care of themselves on their own and need a full- or part-time therapist or nurse to aid them.
Paraplegia injuries fall under two categories: complete and incomplete. A complete paraplegia injury is when you can no longer use or feel anything below your waist. In an incomplete paraplegia injury, you may be able to feel some things or even partially use your limbs and other lower-body functions. In either case, there is often nerve damage around the injury, and many paraplegics suffer from “phantom limb syndrome.”
