What is the level and severity of spinal cord injury?


The consequences of spinal cord injury depend on the level and severity of injury. Surgeons determine injury levels from the fracture site on the spinal column. This may differ from neurological level determined from sensory and motor loss.

Spinal cord injury causes loss of sensation and voluntary movement below the injury site. If the person has motor or sensory function below the injury level at the time of admission, the likelihood of substantial recovery is high.
