What are the symptoms of a spinal cord injury?
Depending on the part of your spine that has been damaged, spinal cord injury may have several symptoms. Injuries to your cervical spine may result in quadriplegia or paraplegia. Damage to the C-4 can impact breathing ability, while C-5 injuries may result in a loss of shoulder and bicep control. C-6 injuries may limit wrist control and C-7 and T-1 injuries may result in problems moving the hands and fingers.
Paraplegia is a common result of injuries throughout the thoracic level of the spinal cord. Injuries at T-1 and T-8 may impact the control of abdominal muscles, and lumbar and sacral injuries may impact the control of hip flexors and legs.
All spinal cord injuries may result in a loss of bladder control, sexual function, sensation, motor skills, and involuntary functions.
