What is Paralysis?

Unable to move

Paralysis
As a general term, it means that nerves and muscles aren't working, and it isn't possible to move. If the spinal cord has been injured, paralysis may be permanent and irreversible. When patients are under anesthesia, certain medications may be used to relax muscles to the point that they are temporarily paralyzed. At the end of surgery, this is reversed and movement returns to normal again.

whats tick paralysis?

Just like it says..

Paralysis
Tick paralysis, mostly seen in the rocky mountain areas of the USA and Canada in the western hemisphere, is an ascending flaccid paralysis that looks like Guillain-Barre syndrome but is caused by toxins from a feeding female tick, usually Dermacentor.

What is hemiplegia paralysis?

Half body weak

Inability_to_move
Hemiplegia means half the body. Paralysis means inability to move. Following a stroke a person may be paralysed on only one half of the body. Any damage to one side of the brain can result in paralysis of the opposite side of the body.

Dr. Jay Rosenfeld answered:

Is spastic paralysis curable?

No

Paralysis
It is possible to reduce the spasticity to a degree with medications, phyiscal therapy, different treatments like botox injections, and some fancier treatments like implantable pumps to deliver anti spasticity medication. Unfortunately at this date we do not have a "cure" that can reverse paralysis. I hope we will someday.
