Partial Paralysis

Partial Paralysis is a term used to describe the limited use of specific muscles as opposed to total paralysis which is the total loss of uses of specific muscles.

An example of partial paralysis would be limited use of your legs because of muscle weakness. Total paralysis would be the total inability to use your legs.

After a stroke a person may have partial paralysis on one side of their body meaning the muscles on that side of the body would be very limited in their use. After a stroke a person could loose the use of all muscles on one side of the body which would be a total paralysis.
