Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries are more common and serious than people think. More than 12,000 spinal cord injuries are reported each year and an extensive amount of rehab required, spinal cord injuries are not an injury to take lightly.
Spinal Cord Injuries; What Are They?
The spinal cord is in charge of carrying signals that control movement and sensation from your brain to the rest of your body. Even a small amount of damage to the spinal cord can have significant impact and result in temporary or permanent damage.
Injuries can include:
- Loss of movement
The majority of these injuries are caused by slips and falls, vehicle accidents and acts of violence like gunshots.
Recovering from a Spinal Cord Injury
Recovering from a spinal cord injury is sometimes impossible. If recovery is possible, it is a long, painful and expensive process. Depending on the severity of the injury and age of the victim, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that the lifetime cost of a spinal cord injury may exceed $3 million.
