What Are Different Types of SCIs?

There are two different types of spinal cord injuries: complete and partial/incomplete. An incomplete SCI refers to spinal damage that results in some feeling or movement below the injured area. Conversely, a complete spinal cord injury results in total loss of bodily function below the injured spinal area.

What Are Different Types of Paralysis Related to SCIs?

Direct injury to the spinal cord or indirect damage to the tissue and bones that surround the spinal cord after an accident can result in paralysis. The severity of muscle function loss greatly depends on the section of the spinal cord that was damaged. 


Most noteworthy, the higher an injury occurs on the spinal cord the more significant amount of paralysis an individual will experience. 

Different types of paralysis related to SCIs include:

Quadriplegia—The most extensive form of paralysis that results in diminished or absent movement in the trunk and all four limbs to include arms, legs, hands, and feet. Additional symptoms may include difficulty breathing, swallowing, and control of bowels/bladder. Furthermore, a Quadriplegic will have suffered catastrophic damage to the cervical section of the spinal cord.

Paraplegia — Partial paralysis that most commonly results in loss of function below the waist from damage to the sacral or thoracic section of the spinal cord.
