Types of Spinal Cord Injury

Types of Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injuries can be organised into two categories:

  • Complete lesion - no function, voluntary movement or physical sensation below the level of the lesion. Both sides of the body are always equally affected.
  • Incomplete lesion ? the effects are variable dependent on the severity of the lesion. An individual may have more functioning or movement on one side of the body than the other, or may be able to feel parts of the body that cannot be moved.

In addition to a loss of sensation and motor function below the point of injury, individuals with spinal cord injuries will often experience other changes.
