Types of Spinal Cord Injuries

There are generally two categories of spinal cord injuries: incomplete and complete.

With an incomplete spinal cord injury, the spinal cord is severely damaged, but the brain and nervous system is still able to send out signals to parts of the body below the site of the injury.  With an incomplete injury, some feeling or functioning below the point of injury remains, and things may improve with time and with the right therapies and treatment.

With a complete spinal injury, the spinal cord is either severed or damaged so severely that the brain can no longer send signals to those portions of the body beneath the point of injury. A complete spinal cord injury will not improve with time, and generally results in the loss of all functioning beneath the point of the injury. Those with complete injuries may also suffer from complications, including:

  • Respiratory problems
  • Bowel and bladder incontinence
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Kidney stones
  • Muscle spasms
  • Loss or impairment of sexual functioning
  • Emotional disorders such as depression

Damages You Can Recover for a Spinal Cord Injury
