Paralysis Powr Pointold Version Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Paralysis By Mike Main, Angela DiPasquale, Ty Thomas
  • 2. Overview
    • - A condition in which the body losses complete use of muscle functions
    • - Hemiplegia, Palsy, Paraplegia, Quadriplegia are other terms for Paralysis
    • - It occurs; on the entire body, or half of the body, or occur in just small sections of the body, or be wide spread
  • 3.  
  • 4. How It Is Caused
    • -It is most often caused by damage to the brain and the spinal cord
    • - Normal function requires intact connections of all along the motor pathway. Damage at any point of the pathway reduces the brain’s ability to control the movement of the muscles
    • - It can also occur as a side effect from strokes, trauma to the human body and other nerve diseases
  • 5. Signs and Effects
    • - A condition in which the body losses complete use of muscle functions
    • - Hemiplegia, Palsy, Paraplegia, Quadriplegia are other terms for Paralysis
    • - It occurs; on the entire body, or half of the body, or occur in just small sections of the body, or be wide spread
  • 6. Cures
    • - Cures for paralysis are hard to come by due to the nature of the diseases that cause it
    • - Stem cell research is also an alternate, in which the stem cells can be turned into spinal cells
  • 7.  
  • 8. Activities For Parapeligics
    • - People with paralysis have very little voluntary control over their body,
    • - Participation in physical activities can improve cardiovascular function, muscle tone, bone density, etc
    • - There are also specialized centers across the United States that specialize in rehabilitating people back into a somewhat normal life-style
  • 9. Parapeligic Basketball
  • 10. Researching Process
    • - In recent years there has been a great increase in the amount of money and manpower invested in researching a cure
    • - There are many ideas of how to deal with paralysis including stem-cell research
    • - Many are working to retrain the bodies’ parts movements through simulated movement
    • - Organizations such as the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation give millions yearly to research and clinical trials
  • 11.  
  • 12. Different Types of Paralysis
    • - There are many different types of paralysis, some that affect different parts of the body
    • - Triplegia, Quadriplegia
    • - Other forms of paralysis include sleep paralysis
  • 13.  
  • 14. Risk Factor
    • - In most cases it can strike anyone individual at any time through obtaining damage to the nerves in the spinal cord
    • - There are situations where a person may be at risk to a disease that may lead to paralysis
    • - Other risk factors are age, risky behavior, and activities that put great stress on the spine
  • 15. Length Of The Disease
    • - Like sleep paralysis, the paralysis only lasts for a little while, but real paralysis is hard to cure
    • - Unless the type of paralysis is curable (tumor-caused paralysis, sleep paralysis), the condition is with the person for the rest of their life
  • 16. Treatments
    • - Cures for paralysis are hard to come by due to the nature of the diseases that cause it
    • - Stem cell research is also an alternate, in which the stem cells can be turned into spinal cells
