In brief: See answer below
Permanent paralysis can be assumed based on the severity of a spinal cord injury and the evidence of lack of improvement over time.
We usually diagnose spinal cord injuries based on their level and severity, such a t7 complete or t2 incomplete. We do not specify whether we think it is permanent or temporary.
