The spinal cord consists of a vertebral column and discs surrounded by nerve roots and tissue. The spinal cord transmits messages from the brain to the arms, legs, and other parts of the human body. In a serious traumatic accident, the spinal cord can become injured. Depending on the severity of the spinal cord injury, the patient can suffer partial or total paralysis including quadriplegia which means paralysis of both arms and both legs. Paraplegia refers to paralysis of the legs only known as the lower extremities. Paraparesis refers to a partial loss of use of the legs while quadriparesis refers to a partial paralysis of all four extremities.
Spinal Cord injuries at the cervical spine closer to the head may cause more loss of function as compared with lower injuries to the lumbar spine or sacrum.
