The spinal cord injury basically consists of damage at the level of the spinal cord, which consequently will give rise to paraplegia, or to a quadriplegia leading the subject to a loss of body control, as well as a loss of sensation below the level where the injury occurred, where the ability to walk again becomes the main objective of the individual in the process of rehabilitation

This damage may be due to trauma, disease or birth defect, causing temporary or permanent paralysis of the muscles of the limbs and the autonomic nervous system, as well as changes in sensitivity depending on the location and extent of the injury.

Spinal cord injury has dramatic effects on the lives of affected people and their families. It conditions important changes in the way of living and carrying out day-to-day tasks, with an impact not only on the individual but also on the people who are closest to him, namely the family.
Assimilating this new situation is neither easy nor fast.

A few years ago, an individual who suffered a spinal cord injury had reduced survival. Currently, due to the evolution of medical knowledge and technological progress, more and more people with spinal cord injuries have a life expectancy close to that of the rest of the population.

Although there is still a risk of developing complications, it is possible to prevent or treat them.
