Spinal cord injury affects the central nervous system in the spinal cord, which holds impulses between the body and the brain and regulates the motions and experiences of the body. It can result in a complete or partial loss of motor function and feeling or a true paralysis of limbs. The cause of these injuries could be a trauma, blow, or some kind of impact on one's spine as a result of a car accident, a fall, a violent act (such as a gunshot wound), a sport related injury, a developmental disorder, or a surgery gone wrong among other causes.
