Complete Vs. Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury
The spinal cord is made up of a bundle of nerves that run through the backbone. This network transmits sensation and controls movement throughout the body. If it suffers damage, it can cause loss of mobility and feeling below the injured area.
Spinal cord injuries are classified into two types: incomplete and complete.
- In an incomplete spinal cord injury, the cord has been damaged but some nerve function remains. This may result in partial or full recovery for function.
- In a complete spinal cord injury, the cord is either severed or damaged, and lifelong immobility and loss of function will most likely occur.
Once the initial injury heals, functional improvements may continue for at least six months. After that time period, any remaining disability is likely to be permanent.
