Spinal cord injuries are characterized as either partial (incomplete) or complete depending on the resulting ability of the spinal cord to convey messages to the brain. People that suffer complete spinal cord injuries have either total or near-total loss of motor function and sensation below the area of the injury while people with partial spinal cord injuries retain some sensation and possibly motor function below the injury. Treatment after a spinal cord can be a long and difficult process that often includes surgery, rehabilitation, and a course of medications.
