Paralysis

Paralysis describes the loss of the ability to move (and sometimes to feel anything) in part of the body, typically as a result of illness or injury. Paralysis can be caused by several factors and have a varying prognosis depending upon the cause and severity. Commonly the hind legs are affected, but it can affect one side of the body, not just the front or back end.
