What are the two categories of spinal cord injuries?

Spinal cord injuries are categorized medically as either complete or incomplete. A complete injury is one that completely severs the spinal cord and eliminates nerve functions below the site of the injury. An incomplete spinal injury is one that has partially severed or damaged the spinal column. Six out of every 10 spinal cord injuries are classified as incomplete.
