Paralysis Powr Pointold Version

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