Spinal cord injury classifications are important

Spinal cord injuries can impact the victim in a variety of ways. It is imperative that anyone who has this type of injury understands the specifics of their injury so that they can prepare for what is to come. Many things can impact the way that the injury impacts your life after the accident. Some of these include the initial injury, the loss of oxygen and the spinal shock that occurs.

One classification of spinal cord injuries can be a good indicator of what might be possible as far as healing goes. There are two classifications that are possible – incomplete and complete. In most cases, an incomplete injury is going to fare better than complete injury.

Those two classifications have to do with how much movement and feeling the victim has after the injury. If there is any feeling or movement below the level of the injury, the injury is incomplete. If there isn't any feeling or movement, it is known as a complete injury.

The area of the body that is affected by the spinal cord injury is always below the area of the injury. This means that the injuries with the most significant impacts are the ones that occur higher on the spine, such as in the cervical area.

For the people who are suffering from spinal cord injuries, the cost is usually considerable. If you were injured in a motorcycle crash, you can seek compensation from the motorist who struck you so that you might be able to minimize your out-of-pocket expenses. Make sure that you are thinking about past and future expenses that you might have.
