What Is a Spinal Cord Injury?

According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS): “A spinal cord injury usually begins with a sudden, traumatic blow to the spine that fractures or dislocates vertebrae.” This kind of injury interrupts axons, which are the nerve cells that carry signals up and down your spinal cord, allowing your brain to communicate with the rest of your body.

Because spinal cord injuries fracture and compress vertebrae and crush and destroy axons, they frequently lead to paralysis. Paralysis occurs when the brain and body can no longer communicate and typically occurs below the site of the spinal cord injury.

Cervical spinal cord injuries affect the head and neck region above the shoulders, thoracic spinal cord injuries affect the upper chest, mid-back, and abdominal muscles; lumbar spinal cord injuries affect the hips and legs, and sacral spinal cord injuries affect the hips, back of the thighs, buttocks, and pelvic organs.

No matter where the injury occurs, paralysis can be complete or incomplete. An incomplete spinal cord injury allows some function below the primary level of injury, while a complete spinal cord injury produces a total loss of all motor and sensory function below the level of injury. Complete spinal cord injuries tend to lead to paraplegia (paralysis from the waist down) and tetraplegia or quadriplegia paralysis from the neck down).
