    Not all spinal (vetebral or disc) injuries result in damage to the spinal cord. A complete or complete injury refers to the spinal cord damage, not to the fracture/dislocation or other bony injury. If he has neurological deficits due to this spinal injury, they could be either due to either peripheral nerve or spinal cord damage or both. If he actually has a spinal cord injury, then you can learn more about how these injuries are classified here:
