Various symptoms may accompany a spinal cord injury, depending on the location where the injury has occurred. Initially, spinal shock may occur. This causes the absence of feeling, reflexes and muscle movement. If the injury is close to the neck, your child's breathing, arms and legs may be affected. An injury that occurs farther down the spinal cord can affect your child's bowel and bladder functions and legs.
