What is a Spinal Cord Injury?

A spinal cord injury occurs when a traumatic force damages the cells in the spine or severs the nerves which relay signals from the body to the brain. All spinal cord injuries are generally divided into two broad categories: complete and incomplete. Complete injuries happen when the spinal cord is severed entirely, while incomplete injuries occur when the cord is partially severed and enables victims to regain/retain some function.

Spinal cord injuries may result in one or more of the following signs and symptoms:

  • Loss of movement, such as paralysis
  • Loss of sensation, including the ability to feel temperatures and touch
  • Loss of bladder or bowel control
  • Spasms
  • Pain or an intense stinging sensation
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Changes in sexual function
  • Depression and anxiety
