Types of Spinal Cord Injuries


Quadriplegia is a severe form of paralysis affecting all four limbs and the torso. People living with this condition no longer have the ability to move these parts of their body, and may also have difficulty controlling their breathing, bladder, and bowel functions. A victim of quadriplegia requires comprehensive medical care and support to manage their day-to-day activities.


Paraplegia is a form of paralysis affecting the body below the waist. Individuals with paraplegia lose the ability to feel sensation in or move their legs and lower body. This condition not only impacts mobility; it also affects one’s overall physical health and quality of life.

Incomplete Spinal Injuries

  • Anterior cord syndrome
  • Central cord syndrome
  • Posterior cord syndrome
