Spinal Cord Injuries
A spinal cord injury refers to any injury that harms any part of the spinal cord or the nerves at the end of the spinal canal. Damage to the spinal cord often results in permanent impairment to strength, sensation, and other bodily functions situated below the site of the injury. The place and severity of the injury are the two largest factors in determining your ability to move your limbs and control your body after an accident. It is extremely important that you see a doctor as soon as possible following an accident if you suspect that you have suffered from a spinal cord injury. Failure to do so can lead to serious, and permanent, complications.
Spinal cord injuries can either be classified as incomplete or complete injuries. Incomplete spinal cord injuries mean that the victim has retained some motor or sensory function below the site of the injury. Complete spinal cord injuries mean that the victim loses all feeling and ability to control motor function below the site of the injury. Spinal cord injuries routinely lead to paraplegia or quadriplegia, where the victim is permanently paralyzed following an accident. Other complications of spinal cord injuries include loss of bowel or bladder control, exaggerated reflexes or spasms, changes in sexual function, pain, stinging sensations, and difficulty breathing that are permanent effects of the injury.
