What is a spinal cord injury?

| Uncategorized

If you have injured your spinal cord in an auto accident that means that damage was caused to your spinal cord and nerve roots. Depending on the level of damage your injury can cause severe pain or paralysis and in extreme cases cause you to lose all functionality.

There are two types of spinal cord injury that vary based on the level of severity of the damage.

  1. An incomplete spinal cord injury generally means that the spinal cord was only partially damaged in the accident and that you will likely retain feeling and functionality.
  2. A complete spinal cord injury means that you will likely lose all feeling below the area of your spine that was injured and there is only a very small chance of recovering from this.
