Spinal Cord Injury

SpinalCordThe spinal cord is the bundle of nerves that extends from the base of the brain to the lower back/pelvis. The brain and spinal cord together make up the central nervous system, which controls the messages your nerves send to all other parts of your body to manage your voluntary (muscle movement) and involuntary (temperature regulation and blood pressure) functions.
