Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) is a broad term that encompasses damage on the spinal cord. These injuries cause changes in the functionality of the spine. There are two basic categories of SCI. They are complete and incomplete.
There are numerous symptoms attributed to Spinal Cord Injury. They include difficulty breathing, loss of sensation, loss of movement, changes in sexual function, the absence of bladder control, and pain around the spine. Complete Spinal Cord injury is when all sensory and motor function is lost below the point of injury. Incomplete is when some function is retained.
