PARALYSIS, MUSCLE DISORDERS, NEUROPATHY, CERVICAL SPONDYLOSIS, HEARING OR VISION LOSS
Paralysis: When something disrupts nerve signals to muscles, you may experience weakness or total loss of power, being unable to make voluntary movements. Common causes of paralysis include strokes, spinal cord injuries and nerve injuries and disorders like LGB, multiple sclerosis. Bell’s palsy causes temporary facial paralysis. Paraplegia involves both legs, while quadriplegia affects all limbs.How is paralysis diagnosed?X-rays show broken bones that could cause nerve injury, imaging tests, such as a CT scan or MRI, check for signs of stroke or brain injury or spinal cord injury.
Electromyogram (EMG) tests the electrical activity of nerves and muscles. Spinal tap (lumbar puncture) tests spinal fluid for infection, inflammation and disorders like multiple sclerosis.
Cervical spondylosis is a general term for age-related wear and tear affecting the spinal disks in your neck. As the disks dehydrate and shrink, signs of osteoarthritis develop, including bony projections along the edges of bones (bone spurs). Cervical spondylosis is very common and worsens with age.
Impairments of the essential senses of vision and hearing contribute to early demise and are important causes of morbidity for individuals who are blind or deaf.Cost-effective interventions are available to address several causes of these burdens now.The number of cost-effectiveness analyses of interventions to preserve hearing or vision in developing countries is quite limited. Many neurological diseases like optic nerve infection, post trauma, meningitis, decreased field of vision by brain tumors and blind spots in many neurological ailments.
Muscle Disorders are the diseases and disorders that affect the human muscle system and their main manifestation is skeletal muscle weakness. The terms ‘muscular dystrophy’, ‘neuromuscular conditions’ and ‘neuromuscular disorders’ fall under the umbrella of the term ‘Muscle Disorders’. Secondary muscle wasting and weakness is due to nerve damage and causes atrophy.
