Anterior Cord resulting from flexion injuries, bilateral loss of motor function, pain, pinprick, and temperature, with preserved light touch and proprioception
Posterior Cord least frequent, proprioceptive loss, with pain, temperature, and touch preserved. motor function preserved to varying degrees
