About Spinal Cord Injuries
A spinal cord injury describes any damage to the central nervous system, housed within the spinal cord. The central nervous system sends signals between the body and brain, permitting movement and sensation. A disruption within this system due to an injury or trauma can result in partial or full loss of feeling and motor control below the point of injury. The types of spinal cord injuries are:
- Complete. A complete spinal cord injury occurs if the survivor loses all feeling and motor function below the point of injury.
- Incomplete. Someone has an incomplete spine injury if he/she loses some but not all feeling and function below the injury. Various levels of incomplete spine injuries exist.
- Paraplegia. Paralysis of the trunk, legs, and pelvic organs. Paraplegia can result from injuries to the middle or lower parts of the spinal cord.
- Tetraplegia. Injuries to the upper part of the spine, or the cervical spinal cord, can result in paralysis of the arms, trunk, legs, and pelvic organs.
Many people do not survive serious spinal cord injuries. If they do, complications associated with the injury can follow them for the rest of their lives. People living with spine injuries generally require long-term medical care or live-in assistance, home and vehicle modifications, medications, medical devices, and lifelong therapy and rehabilitation. Although there is no cure for spinal cord injuries, some patients may improve their capabilities with years of rehabilitation.
