Paralysis is a very common illness encountered by people. It is also called as Stroke/ Brain Attack.
What is stroke/ Paralysis?
Stroke or paralysis occurs when a part of the brain gets damaged due to its reduced blood supply. It is similar to a person having a heart attack, when the blood supply of the heart gets compromised. The blood vessels of the brain may get blocked (known as Thrombotic/embolic Stroke) or they may rupture (known as brain haemorrhage).
