In brief: Appropriate care
Most patients with quadriplegia were either born with brain injury or acquired it due to injury or infection.
Once the injury occurs, there is little more to do other than provide appropriate therapy and care. Most patients have trouble with bowel and bladder control, and some have breathing problems and need special respiratory support. Most important is to avoid complications.
