What is a Spinal Cord injury?!
A spinal cord injury consists of any severe damage directly to the spinal, which contains a cluster of nerves inside the spinal column (backbone) that transmits messages between the brain and body. Any serious blow administered to the spinal cord may lead to partial or full loss of motor control and sensation, typically causing paralysis in either the lower extremities of the body or in all four limbs.
