The most common form of paralysis is a result of spinal nerves becoming damaged. A spinal cord injury can permanently change a person’s motor skills, strength, senses, and emotional state. Whether a complete or incomplete paralysis, the victim will have an altered lifestyle.
A complete spinal cord injury results in paralysis below the site of the injury. There’s no feeling or movement and both sides of the body are affected equally. An incomplete spinal cord injury occurs when only part of the cord is damaged. People with incomplete injuries may retain some feeling and movement. Thanks to advancements in medical treatment, incomplete injuries have become more common.
