Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are classified as complete or partial, depending on how many of the nerves in the spinal cord are damaged.

Complete: If a spinal cord injury is complete, there is no sensation or voluntary movement below the point of injury and both sides of the body are affected.

Partial: If a spinal cord injury is partial, or incomplete, there is some function and feeling below the point of injury. The victim may be able to move one limb more than the other or have more sensation on one side than the other.  Whether a spinal cord injury is complete or partial may determine the outcome of the injury. Many individuals with partial spinal cord injury may experience significant recovery, while victims with complete spinal cord injury are often permanently paralyzed.
