Spinal cord injuries include paraplegia (spinal cord injury resulting in paralysis of the arms) tetraplegia/quadriplegia (spinal cord injury resulting in paralysis of both arms and legs), as well as lesser but serious insults to the spinal cord, such as myelomalacia (injury to the spine causing softening of the spinal cord).
