  • Paraplegia- an injury to the spinal cord just below the first thoracic spinal nerve. The results of this injury is paralysis of the legs. The victim will suffer a loss of leg movement and sometimes the lower abdomen area as well.
  • Quadriplegia/ Tetraplegia- an injury to the spinal cord just above the first thoracic vertebra. The results of this injury is paralysis of all four limbs. The victim will suffer a loss of movement to both arms and both legs and often the chest and abdominal muscles as well.
  • Cauda Equina Syndrome- There is a mass of nerves that fan out of the spinal cord, known as the Caude Equina. These nerves are located between the first and second Lumbar region and if damaged, the victim may suffer the same result at paraplegia. In this type of injury, the nerves do have the ability to grow again and somewhat recover.
