This article is about the physical malady. For the mental disorder, see general paresis.

Paresis is a condition typified by partial loss of movement, or impaired movement. When used without qualifiers, it usually refers to the limbs, but it also can be used to describe the muscles of the eyes. Neurologists use the term paresis to describe weakness, and plegia to describe paralysis [in which all movement is lost].
