A spinal cord injury is a severe injury as it has the potential to affect motor functioning ability, reflexes, and sensations. Spinal cord injuries can be categorized in two ways, complete and incomplete. A complete spinal cord injury results in paralysis below the place of injury, where there is no sensations or movement, and both sides of the body are paralyzed. An incomplete spinal cord injury happens when one part of the spinal cord is harmed. An incomplete spinal cord injury can still prompt paralysis, however, these injuries are usually limited.
Due to the variety of spinal cord injuries, every case is different. If you have suffered an incomplete spinal cord injury you could gain feeling back in the area, but could still deal with adversities everyday for the remainder of your life.
