If your fingers are paralyzed and you are undergoing rehabilitation, continuous rehabilitation is required. Therefore, there are many people who train not only for outpatient rehabilitation but also for rehabilitation equipment that can be done at their own pace at home.
Paralysis of the fingers can also be caused by excessive strain and damage to the spinal cord due to injury or traffic accidents. In addition, damage to the spinal cord can paralyze areas other than the fingers.

What is spinal cord injury that causes paralysis of fingers?
Spinal cord injury is the damage to the spinal cord that passes through the spinal canal. Inflammation of the spinal cord can cause the same problems as injury.
If the spinal cord is damaged, it can become paralyzed. The spinal cord is the central nerve, and once damaged, it becomes a difficult part to recover.

- Traffic accident
- Herniated disc
How to recover from paralysis caused by spinal cord injury?
It has generally been said that if the spinal cord is injured, the paralysis of the limbs cannot be recovered, but depending on the degree of damage, rehabilitation may recover the paralysis. In such a case, if the start of rehabilitation is delayed, the recovery will be delayed, so early rehabilitation is the point. When regenerative ability is lost, rehabilitation is performed to supplement the lost function by strengthening new neural circuits. By aiming to improve motor function through long-term rehabilitation, the paralysis caused by spinal cord injury may also be recovered.
What is physical paralysis? Can you prevent it?
Spinal cord injury, which is one of the causes of finger paralysis. Training will be provided for recovery using rehabilitation equipment. Rehabilitation equipment is sometimes used for preventive purposes, and there are various types such as glove types. You can expect to recover from paralysis by using rehabilitation equipment, but the method and what you can do in your daily life will differ depending on the type.

Types of physical paralysis
- Complete paralysis
Complete paralysis means that the nerve transmission function from the brain, which is necessary for daily movements, is blocked, and all body functions other than the damaged part are paralyzed.
On the other hand, paresis is when the spinal cord is compressed and part of its function is paralyzed. Paresis, unlike complete paralysis, leaves many physical functions that can be moved.
When the spinal cord is injured, the rehabilitation training method and rehabilitation equipment used differ depending on the type of physical paralysis, and what can be done also changes.
Activities of daily living that change depending on the degree of physical paralysis
Depending on the damaged part of the cervical spine, what you can and cannot do will be different.
