Injuries to the neck (the cervical spine) or to the low back (the lumbar spine) can result in serious damage to the spinal cord causing permanent, and often catastrophic injuries. An injury to the spinal cord, the central carrier of signals throughout the body, may be simply a bruise (or contusion), or a partial or complete tear. A mild contusion may cause the temporary loss of some function below the site of the injury. A complete transection, or severing of the spinal cord, causes a total and permanent loss of sensation and movement below the site of the injury.
