What is a complete spinal cord transection?


A complete spinal cord transection refers to when the spinal cord is completely severed. When this happens, it is considered a traumatic injury that can result in complete paralysis or partial paralysis, depending on where the tear is located. Below the tear will be where the loss of movement and feeling occurs. The higher the tear occurs in the spinal column, the more severe the injury will be. The top causes of spinal injuries include car accidents, physical violence between people, sports injuries, and falls.
