Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries are typically categorized into two different types: complete and incomplete. These refer to the level of injury and the impact it has on the individual’s functioning post-injury.
- Complete spinal cord injuries mean that the victim no longer has any ability to function below the level of the injury—meaning they experience no sensation and no movement.
- Incomplete spinal cord injuries mean that there is some level of function below the level of injury, which could mean some movement, some feeling, or more function on one side of the body.

In fact, according to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, someone who suffers from high tetraplegia when approximately 25 years of age will accrue more than $4.7 million in lifetime costs.
