Thanks for posting your query.

She needs to be evaluated by a spine surgeon or preliminarily by a Orthopedician through x ray and MRI.
The injury can be assessed through these and can be planned for surgery based on the mode of injury.
Your history could indicate quadriplegia if she is not able to move all the four limbs.
So I suggest you to go to a spine surgeon.

Hope I have answered your query.

Wishing you good health.
