1

ASIA A

complete: no sensory or motor function is preserved in sacral segments S4-S5

2

ASIA B

sensory incomplete: no motor function is preserved, but sensory is preserved below the neuro level and in sacral segments S4-5

3

ASIA C

motor incomplete: motor and sensory is preserved below the neuro level with most key muscles <3/5

4

ASIA D

motor incomplete: motor and sensory is preserved below the nerd level w/ most key muscles > or equal to 3/5

5

ASIA E

normal: sensory and motor functions are normal
