Spinal cord injury (SCI) appears as a result of a traumatic event or by presence of a mass that could cause pressure or lesion to the spinal cord.
Normally, our spine is made up from bony structures piled together called vertebrae, which have a hollow part in which the spinal cord goes through, from the base of the skull down to the sacrum.
According to the WHO, there are no reliable global prevalence, but it is estimated that incidence ranges from 40 to 80 cases per million inhabitants. Up to 90% of these cases are due to traumatic causes, although the proportion of spinal lesions of non-traumatic origin seems to be increasing.
Traumatic injuries of the spine usually appear due to a sudden blow or a cut in the spine and tend to cause permanent loss of strength, sensitivity and mobility below the site of the injury.
When dealing with a “complete” lesion of the spinal cord, no motor or sensory function is preserved. Whereas with an “incomplete” spinal cord injury, there is sensory preservation but no motor function is conserved below the neurological level.
