Typical causes of quadriplegia are trauma associated with traffic collisions, diving into shallow water, a terrible fall or even a sports injury. Certain diseases such as transverse myelitis or polio, congenital disorders such as muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis are also causes of this condition. It is possible to suffer a broken neck without becoming a quadriplegic, because when the vertebrae are fractured or dislocated, the spinal cord is not damaged. Conversely, it is very possible to injure the spinal cord without breaking the spine.
Patients, who suffer from quadriplegia or tetraplegia, will find an absolutely great and essential form of comfort and alleviation in that of medical marijuana. Those who use medical marijuana with this condition will receive a better overall sense of well-being, lessening of any muscular spasticity associated with this condition and the alleviating of any neuropathic pain.
