Why can’t you move your legs when you break your neck?

    A broken neck, also known as a cervical fracture, can occur in many different varieties.  If there is damage to the spinal cord, paraplegia or quadriplegia can occur.  Your spinal cord, combined with your brain, make up your central nervous system – this system of nerves, using the spinal cord as transport, is how your brain tells your arms and legs to move.  If the cord is broken, there is no longer communication between your brain and your arms/legs.
