Your spinal cord is a column of nerve tissue that travels down your back, relaying information from your brain to the rest of your body. It’s protected by your spine, which is also known as the backbone.
A traumatic injury that damages the backbone may cause a spinal cord injury that results in paralysis, which is the loss of muscle function. When a patient suffers from paralysis, it can mean partial or complete loss of motor control and physical sensations below the point of injury.
There are two main types of paralysis. Paraplegia is a type of paralysis that affects all or part of the legs, trunk, and pelvic region, and quadriplegia affects your arms, hands, legs, trunk, and pelvic region.
Symptoms of a spinal cord injury include:
- Partial or complete paralysis
- Loss of movement in legs
- Loss of movement in arms
- Pain or weakness
- Difficulty breathing
- Loss of bowel and bladder control
- Digestion issues
- Reduced bone density
- Loss of sexual function
- Impaired health and fitness
- Circulatory problems
- Diminished muscle tone
- Depression and anxiety
- Complications from bedsores
A frequent cause of spinal cord injury is traumatic impact. Falls and collisions can produce fractures, dislocation, or compression of the spine that result in catastrophic spinal cord damage. The spine may be severed by displaced bones or damaged by bleeding, swelling, inflammation, and the accumulation of fluids.
Frequent causes of severe spinal cord injuries include:
- Automobile collisions
- Sports injuries
- Falls from height
- Bicycle accidents
- Motorcycle crashes
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Gunshot wounds
- Violent assault
- When a pedestrian is struck by a motor vehicle
A person who suffers a severe spinal cord injury will require extensive medical treatment and daily living assistance. Your life will be completely disrupted, and you may never be able to work again. That’s why the true cost of a spinal cord injury can be millions of dollars.
