A spinal cord injury is as serious as it is feared. A complete spinal cord injury causes a total loss of function below the injury. Quadriplegia (tetraplegia) and paraplegia are common-known results of a spinal cord injury, but they are other less-known consequences. In an incomplete spinal cord injury, part of the cord is damaged leaving victims with some feeling and movement.
Some consequences of spinal cord injury include:
- Hemiplegia, or paralysis of one side of the body
- Loss of sensation
- Muscle spasm
- Loss of bowel or bladder control
