A spinal cord injury is an injury to the central nervous system in the spinal cord and can result in full or partial loss of motor control and sensation.. People with a severe spinal cord injury are likely to have paralysis in all four limbs (tetraplegia).
Someone with a severe spinal cord injury will have little or no movement in their limbs and will probably only be able to move their head and possibly their shoulders. They may also need a ventilator to assist their breathing. Somebody with a lesser spinal cord injury may be able to extend their elbows and may have some movement in their fingers.
