What is a Spinal Cord Injury?
The spinal cord is a long bundle of nerves whose job is to send messages from the brain throughout the body. A spinal cord injury is damage to the nerve tissue in the spinal canal that disrupts these messages. Spinal cord injuries are severe and affect the body in any number of ways.
Doctors classify spinal cord injuries by levels in the vertebrae. Areas of the body below the damaged level are likely to lose function, feeling, or mobility. There are two types of spinal cord injuries: complete and incomplete.
A complete spinal cord injury causes a loss of all function and sensation below the injury level. An incomplete spinal cord injury may retain some level of function and sensation below the level of the damage. Although incomplete and complete spinal cord injuries may have lifelong consequences, incomplete spinal cord injuries have a better prognosis for recovery.
Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
Any severe accident may damage the spinal cord. Some of the more common causes of spinal cord injuries include:
The costs and treatment associated with spinal cord injuries and treatment are extensive. They include:
Hospital and emergency room bills;
