What Causes Spinal Cord Injuries?

According, to the National Institute of Health, spinal cord injuries usually begin with a blow that fractures or dislocates your vertebrae, the bone discs that make up your spine. Most injuries don’t sever your spinal cord. Instead, they cause damage when pieces of vertebrae tear into cord tissue or press down on the nerve parts that carry signals from the brain to the body.

Generally speaking, there are two primary types of spinal cord injuries:

  • In a complete spinal cord injury, the cord can’t relay messages below the level of the injury. As a result, you are paralyzed below the level of injury.
  • In an incomplete spinal cord injury, you have some movement and sensation below the injury.

A spinal cord injury is a medical emergency. Immediate treatment can reduce long-term effects. Later treatment usually includes medicine and rehabilitation therapy. The long term prognosis can vary depending on the severity of the injury and the location of the damage to the spinal cord. The most severe spinal cord injuries can result in complete paralysis or even death, but even mild injuries can lead to disability and chronic pain.

Complications Associated with Spinal Cord Injuries

Sadly, in most cases, spinal cord injuries lead to numerous other complications aside from the obvious mobility issues associated with such accidents.

Spinal cord injuries can cause:

  • Breathing difficulties
  • Loss of normal bowel and bladder control
  • Numbness
  • Sensory changes
  • Spasticity
  • Weakness
  • Paralysis (quadriplegia, paraplegia)
  • Chronic pain

The lifetime cost of treating these complications can be enormous. In addition to financial concerns, many victims of spinal cord injuries face immense physical and emotional burdens, as their lives and their ability to live independently are forever altered.
