Complete vs. Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury

By February 10, 2015Spine Injury

An incomplete spinal cord injury occurs when the cord is damaged, perhaps even partially severed, but still one single unit. A complete spinal cord injury occurs when the spine is severed into more than one piece. Both of these injuries will have lasting consequences.

Depending on the location of the damage, a spinal cord injury may result in a partial or complete loss of muscle and nervous system function. This can include:

  • Paralysis
  • Loss of bowl and bladder function
  • Loss of sexual function

Loss of function typically occurs in those areas of the body controlled by the portion of the spine below the injury.
