The spinal cord relays messages from the brain to all parts of the body through electrical signals. When injury is sustained to this structure, bodily functions can be permanently lost.
This video explains how spinal function is classified. If the injury is high up on the spine in the cervical region, little bodily control is possible. With injuries further down the spine, more independence and mobility exists.
