Do You Have an Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury?

By Alpert Schreyer on December 28, 2012

Incomplete Spinal TraumaSpinal cord injuries, by nature, are often both severe in its effects and causes. Most commonly, those who have suffered a spinal cord injury will know very soon afterwards that they have suffered a major injury. However, not all spinal cord injuries are as immediately noticeable. The types of trauma that result in immediate and total paralysis below the site of the injury are known as complete spinal cord injuries, but those that do not cause such major damage, however, are called incomplete.

Incomplete spinal cord injuries result in a loss of motor function, physical sensation, and overall capabilities below the site of injury, but vary depending on the type and severity of the injury. Slip and fall accidents, car crashes, assault, and many other types of incidents can result in a spinal cord injury, so long as the spine itself is affected in some way. But these injuries may occur in a more subtle manner, or may happen more slowly over time, such as repetitive stress or reoccurring minor injuries. Any of these accidents may cause the spinal cord to be stretched, compressed, twisted, or otherwise damaged beyond its normal capacity, leading to an incomplete injury.

But not all victims may immediately know that they have been injured. In order to be aware of a possible injury and seek immediate medical attention, which will prevent this trauma from worsening, be aware of the symptoms of incomplete trauma.

  • Unknown pain in the back
  • Feelings of physical weakness
  • Diminished feeling in your limbs
  • Loss of bowel or bladder control
  • Changes in muscle tone
