Different Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries range in severity and are categorized as either complete or incomplete. A complete spinal cord injury causes permanent damage to the affected area of the spine.
Paralysis is a common condition associated with this type of spinal cord injury. An incomplete spinal cord injury results in limited or partial damage. Where the injury occurs on the spine plays a role in how it affects your life.
The two categories of spinal cord injuries can be separated into four groups that often determine the severity of your injury.
Sacral spinal cord injuries affect the hips, pelvic organs, buttocks, and thighs. Accident victims with this injury may temporarily or permanently lose their ability to walk. Sacral injury victims also typically have little control over their bowels and bladder.
Lumbar spinal cord injuries directly affect the hips and legs. You may be able to move about with the help of a walker or cane; a wheelchair may also be required. With the proper medical care, some individuals can recover, depending on the severity of the trauma.
Thoracic spinal cord injuries affect the chest, back, and abdomen. Victims of this injury may lack strength in their extremities and bladder and bowel control.
Cervical spinal injuries affect the area above the shoulders, including the neck and head, resulting in total paralysis. This is considered to be the most severe spinal cord injury. The closer the cervical spinal injury is to the skull, the more likely the damage may result in death.
Those who suffer this injury lose nearly all sensory functions. This injury will require specialized care, including home modifications and dedicated care.
