Paralysis Prevention


Although paraplegia is most often caused by injury or accident, the chance of injury resulting in paraplegia may be lessened by paying careful attention to environmental factors. Using safety equipment when playing sports and wearing seatbelts when driving will help reduce the chance that an accident will cause serious injury. Avoidance of risk taking activities, such driving while under the influence or driving when tired, will also reduce the likelihood of accidents that can cause paraplegia.
