Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders, there are two types of spinal cord injuries:
- An incomplete injury is when the spinal cord is still able to convey messages to the brain, allowing some movement below the injury (partial paralysis).
- A complete injury is when all motor function is lost at and below the damaged point on the spine (complete paralysis).
After suffering any form of spinal cord injury, it is vital for an individual to obtain immediate medical treatment and rehabilitation to reduce the long-term damage to their system. In addition, an injured person needs access to the latest technologies. There are an array of mobility aids designed to help an injured person gain back some movement.
Complications Related to Spinal Cord Injuries
Besides symptoms related to paralysis, some individuals who have sustained spinal cord injuries deal with respiratory problems. Many of these individuals will need a medical device to assist with breathing. Other common problems include dysfunction in the bladder or bowels, as well as heart problems.
