Hi, every spinal injury is very dangerous. Spine is protecting spinal cord trough which are passing nerve paths crucial for moving of our bodies. Also there are situated other sensitive paths which allow us to feel different senses from our surrounding. If spinal injury is high in cervical region it may cause quadriplegia which means that he won't be able to move his legs and arms. Lower location may damage legs movement and function of sphincters. If injury is slight it may disrupt sense of touch.
