Doctors identify spinal cord injuries and classify them as either complete or incomplete; complete means that no nerve signals travel below the point of injury, which leads to paralysis below that point. Incomplete means some signals can pass, so there is some control and sensation.
Symptoms of spinal cord injuries may include:
- Partial or complete paralysis
- Changes in strength, sensation or bodily control
- Numbness or tingling
- Sexual dysfunction
- Breathing difficulty
- Bowel and/or bladder dysfunction
- Digestive Issues
- Pain or intense sensation
- Muscle spasms
The complications associated with a spinal cord injury are serious and can be life changing, where it requires extensive medical treatment and lifestyle changes.
