how do paralyzed people flatten there stomach?

like an exercise they do that helps them loose the tummy if they dont have any abs to do crunches?

Answer #1

If they are paralyzed from the neck down, then they don’t do exercises like that. What would be the point? However, they do often go to physiotherapy to keep fit - for health reasons.

Answer #2

If they are only paralized from the waist down its possible they can do situps, crunches, side crunches, etc. It all depends on how severe their paralysis is and what parts of their bodies were paraliyzed.

Answer #3

ok let me re question my question :) i am paralyed, not from the neck down but from the chest down(right under the nipple. T5.
