Understanding Incomplete & Complete Spinal Cord Injuries
Generally, spinal cord injuries are divided into 2 categories. Incomplete spinal cord injuries include those that allow the victim to maintain some use and feeling in the limbs below the point of damage. Thus, if you sustain an injury in your lower back but can still feel and move your legs to some extent, this counts as an incomplete spinal cord injury. On the other hand, complete spinal cord injuries inhibit any feeling or movement in the limbs below the point of damage.
Spinal cord injuries may be caused by:
- Workplace accidents
- Car crashes
- Construction accidents
- Defective products
Injuries like this occur when a sudden force impacts your spine. It often causes small, displaced pieces of bone, and may sever your spinal nerves partially or completely. Because of this, victims may experience a loss of sensation and movement of limbs below the area of damage to the spine.
What You Need to Know About Paralysis
Depending on the location and severity of the impact, injuries to the spinal cord may lead to partial or full paralysis of one or more limbs. Paraplegia refers to paralysis of the lower body and legs, while quadriplegia (also called tetraplegia) refers to paralysis of the entire body below the neck. Paralysis can have lifelong debilitating effects, which often cause stress and emotional trauma for the victim.
