In brief: Paralysis and more
Symptoms of spinal cord injury include: partial or complete paralysis of muscles below the level of injury, loss of sensation below the injury level, and a change in function of the bowel and bladder.
Most spinal cord injuries also result in spasticity of the muscles (unless the injury was low in the lumbar spine), accompanied by changes in blood pressure regulation and temperature regulation.
