In brief: Plegia-n; paresis-y
Hemiplegia is a complete paralysis, usually of a limb or limbs (commonly on one side of the body and due to stroke).
Largely irreversible, however well planned exercise, pt, particularly occupational therapy--maximizing functionality in activities of daily living--important. Hemiparesis is weakness: here, much can be reversed, at least improved, and other muscles can take over the same function.
