Were You Injured?

Spinal cord injuries can be devastating and the results may affect you for the rest of your life. One of the most serious lasting effects is paralysis, which can present itself in a few different ways, from your legs and lower torso (paraplegia) to total loss of sensory and motor function below the neck (quadriplegia).

Paralysis is also broken down into two distinct classifications based on where the injury occurred, and how your body is affected:

  • Paraplegia: Paralysis is classified as paraplegia when it affects the lower portion of the trunk, pelvis, and legs.
  • Quadriplegia: Also known as tetraplegia, quadriplegia affects the entirety of the trunk, arms, hands, legs, and pelvis.

Paraplegia/Quadriplegia Symptoms

The severity of someone’s paralysis is classified in two ways:

  • Incomplete: Some motor or sensory function remains below the site of the injury.
  • Complete: Almost all motor and sensory function below the site of the injury is lost.

However paralysis affects you, it may require you to make permanent changes to your lifestyle, home, and mode of transportation. Along with these changes, you will require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation, the costs of which can quickly add up.
