How does daily life change after paralysis?

| Mar 25, 2020 | Motorcycle Accidents |

Healing from a paralyzing motorcycle accident in southern California will take all your determination. Moreover, recovery is only the beginning of a life-long transformation. 

We have been with para- and quadriplegic clients as they fight to adapt to their new limitations and discover strength they never knew they had. We have also watched as their medical expenses pile up and their paychecks ebb because they cannot perform the same jobs that they could before. Your life will never be the same, and we want you to understand what to expect so that you can prepare to meet the challenges head-on. 


Rehabilitation is a tedious process that involves more than merely working to regain as much physical function as you can. According to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, techniques like occupational therapy focus on teaching you how to accomplish daily tasks. Rehab can include Complex Rehabilitation Technologies (CRT), medically necessary devices like wheelchairs and other mobility products. Depending on your injury, these can help you function independently in the world. 

Secondary medical conditions 

Secondary conditions are a variety of medical issues that often arise from paralysis. These can include: 

  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) 
  • Hand and foot swelling 
  • Bladder and bowel complications 
  • Pain 
  • Sepsis 

You will likely have some conditions that require medical care for the rest of your life. However, if you give these issues the proper attention, they can be completely manageable. 

Home and vehicle modifications 

Only a small percentage of people with paraplegia can function without a wheelchair, and most homes are not accessible to start. From wider doors, ramps and grab bars to lowered countertops and sinks, architects and builders can adapt your home to your needs as your budget allows. 

Adapted vehicles can reopen the world, even if you have limited use of your arms or hands. New controls could mean relearning how to operate a car, but driving laws and traffic conditions remain the same. 

Your life is on an altered path. Yet, it is far from over, and you owe yourself the chance to live it the best you can. You can find more material about paralysis from a motorcycle accident by visiting our website.
