Injury to the spinal cord results in sensory and physical loss below the level of the lesion. Spinal cord injuries are most often caused by gunshot wounds, falls, automobile accidents and sports related injuries. Permanent paralysis is caused by fractures and dislocations that puncture or transect the spinal cord.
Quadriplegia results from an injury to the cervical area of the cord and causes sensory and motor loss to the arms, trunk and legs. Paraplegia results from an injury to the thoracic and lumbar cord areas and causes sensory and motor loss to the trunk and/or legs.
