There are many different kinds of spinal cord injuries including contusion – caused by a bruising of the spinal cord; compression – caused by pressure on the spinal cord; laceration – occurs when nerve fibers tear or are severed; central cord syndrome – occurs when there is specific damage to the corticospinal tracts of the cervical region of the spinal cord. A spinal cord injury occurs when cells within the spinal cord are damaged or when the nerve tracts that relay signals up and down the spinal cord are severed.
Such an injury can lead to partial (also referred to as incomplete) or complete paralysis. If all four limbs are affected, this is known as quadriplegia; if the lower limbs are affected this is known as paraplegia.
