Spinal Cord Injury @ T5

posted by .

I'm not quite understand how spinal cord injuries work. If you have a complete spinal cord injury @ T5, what does that mean in terms of what you can do? There is so much info on the cervical region of the spinal cord but I can't find much on the thoracic especially T5! Apparently, the person would be in a wheelchair but why is that?
