The Different Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries can be separated into two broad categories, complete and incomplete. These two categories refer to how much control you have over your limbs after an injury, something that is largely dependent on the place of your injury and how severe the spinal cord was injured. A spinal cord injury is complete when all ability to control movement and all feelings below the injury are lost. Likewise, an injury is incomplete when some, but not all, feeling and control over movement are lost.
