Due to spinal cord injuries, impulses do not flow through the damaged area, which cuts off information between the brain and certain parts of the body. Usually, the areas above the point of injury do not lose function, while the ones below will be impaired. The impairments may include:
- Motor deficit
- Sensory deficit
- Breathing difficulty
- Bowel and/or bladder dysfunction
*IN ALL INSTANCES, SEEK IMMEDIATE PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL CARE.
