Depending on the location and severity of damage, the symptoms vary, from numbness to paralysis. Complications can include muscle atrophy, pressure sores, infections, and breathing problems.
Research on treatments includes stem cell implantation, engineered materials for tissue support, epidural spinal stimulation, and wearable robotic exoskeletons.
