Most injuries don’t sever your spinal cord. Instead, they cause damage when pieces of vertebrae tear into cord tissue or press down on the nerve parts that carry signals. In a complete spinal cord injury, the cord can’t relay messages below the level of the injury. As a result, you are paralyzed below the level of injury. In an incomplete spinal cord injury, you have some movement and sensation below the injury.

The long term prognosis can very depending on the severity of the injury and the location of the damage to the spinal cord. The most severe spinal cord injuries can result in complete paralysis or even death, but even mild injuries can lead to disability and chronic pain.
