What Is Partial Paralysis?
The concept of paralysis is often conveyed as the total inability to move a limb or body part. While this may be true in many cases, partial paralysis, which is the numbing or limitation of certain muscles, is more common. Slight damage to the spinal cord or nerves along limbs can trigger immediate and permanent partial paralysis, or the symptoms may worsen over time.
It is important to seek a doctor’s diagnosis whenever you have a workplace injury, especially one in which you fell, was struck by an object, or experienced after lifting a heavy object. If you do not, a back injury could eventually cause paralysis.
Symptoms to look out for include:
- Tingling sensation in extremities
- Soreness in back muscles
- Muscle stiffness after waking up
- Pain when lying down or sitting upright
Find Coverage for Expensive Treatments
Spinal cord damage is debilitating physically and financially. Due to the fact that spinal tissue regenerates slowly or not at all, you may need to undergo expensive treatments for the rest of your life to alleviate or lessen the symptoms of partial paralysis. If your employer is not offering workers’ compensation to accommodate your needs fairly, you should turn to our Orange County lawyers for legal support.
