ACTIVITY 2:
Effects of Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injuries cause varying effects on bodily functions, depending on the type and level of the injury.

There are two types of injuries - complete and incomplete. A complete injury means that there is no sensation or voluntary movement below the level of injury. An incomplete injury means that there is some function.

With your mouse click on different sections of the spinal column to see the effects of injuries at each level. The sections are C1-C3, C4-C8, T3-T8, T9-T12, L1-L5, and S1-S5.
