Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
Recovery from a spinal cord injury may be impossible. Recovery will depend on the type of spinal cord injury you sustain. The two types of spinal cord injuries are complete and incomplete. With an incomplete spinal cord injury, you may still have some ability to move parts of your body below your injury. Complete spinal cord injuries, on the other hand, will make movement impossible.
Both types of spinal cord injuries can have consequences including:
- Loss of sensation
- Loss of mobility
- Loss of bowel and bladder control
- Loss of sexual function
- Impacted breathing capacity
- Extreme pain from nerve damage
