What is Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)?
SCI is damage to the spinal cord that may be the result of physical trauma, illness or disease. The spinal cord is the neural tissue in the spinal canal that connects the brain to the body below the head. This neural tissue cannot normally regenerate, therefore damage to the spinal cord is considered permanent.
A person with paraplegia has paralysis in the lower extremities and part of the torso.
A person with tetraplegia (quadriplegia) has, in addition, a partial or complete paralysis of the hands and arms due to a spinal cord injury in the cervical area.
