There are 2 different classifications for spinal cord injuries. These are known as complete and incomplete.

When a spinal cord injury is incomplete, the victim may retain some physical capabilities below the point of their injury
. They may also be able to feel sensation below the point of the injury.

When a spinal cord injury is complete, the victim will have no physical capabilities below the point of their injury,
nor will they have any sensation below the point of their spinal cord injury. When it comes to spinal cord injuries, a complete spinal cord injury is usually considered a worst-case scenario.

Thanks to modern advancements in medicine, as well as emotional and physical therapy, incomplete injuries have become more common over the past few years. In many cases, rehabilitation can help to restore some of the victim's physical capabilities.

If you have questions regarding spinal cord injuries after an accident in Clayton, you can get the professional advice of a Clayton personal injury attorney.
