The Differences Between Quadriplegia and Paraplegia


Here’s a conversation I’ve had more than once, in my journey since my accident. Someone will ask me “You’re a quadriplegic? I thought a quadriplegic couldn’t move anything!” and this leads to a discussion about what it really means to be a quadriplegic.


So today’s vlog goes in-depth into the topic of quadriplegia vs. paraplegia, the ways that spinal cord injuries are classified, and why some people with spinal cord injuries can regain movement and others, like me, cannot.
