Our brain and spinal cord make up what is known as the body’s central nervous system. The spinal cord links the brain with the nerves in our bodies. When the spinal cord is injured, the brain may lose the ability to communicate with the body. If the spinal cord becomes severed, the brain cannot communicate with any part of the body below the location of the injury. If the spinal cord is severed at the mid or lower back, the injured person is likely to lose feeling and use of the lower body and legs.
