Understanding Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are serious injuries that can change the way the body functions. Serious injuries to the spinal cord may result in paralysis:

  • Quadriplegia (or tetraplegia): Paralysis from (about) the shoulders down
  • Paraplegia: Paralysis from (about) the waist down

Spinal cord injuries are either complete or incomplete. An incomplete spinal cord injury means that the patient has some function below the level of injury. A complete spinal cord injury is one in which there is no function below the level of injury.

What Causes Spinal Cord Injuries?

Spinal cord injuries are often caused by violent force to the spinal cord. This is commonly caused in motor vehicle accidents and less commonly in slip-and-fall accidents, sporting injuries, and acts of violence. Spinal cord injuries can also be caused by disease.
