What is motor paralysis?

Motor paralysis develops when the muscles of the body become unbalanced. Abnormalities occur in the muscles of the body, and the tension becomes stronger or weaker.

Types of motor paralysis (general example)

  • Shoulders rise freely
  • My elbows bend
  • The palm of your hand bends up
  • My fingers bend


Motor paralysis is characterized by increased muscle tension in the early stages of onset and calming down over time. Therefore, shortly after the onset, it becomes difficult to stretch the fingers and shoulders normally, but it gradually becomes possible to stretch.

Types of motor paralysis conditions

  • Separation movement
  • Synkinesis

There are two types of motor paralysis: segregation and synkinesis. Separation movement affects only the parts of the body where the symptoms appear, such as only the shoulders and fingers, and synkinesis means that the shoulders and fingers do not move together with the symptoms.

Evaluation method of separation movement (in the case of fingers)

Separation movements can be evaluated in stages. Here, we will introduce the evaluation method for fingers.

  • You can make your fingers goo (Stage 3)
  • All fingers can be extended (stage 4)
  • You can pinch each of the other 4 with your thumb (Stage 5)
  • The fingers can be opened and closed sideways, and can be bent and extended one by one (stage 6).

The evaluation method described above can be used to determine whether or not the fingers are paralyzed. It is also an index that you should aim for when performing rehabilitation.
