Spinal Cord Injuries
Injuries to the spinal cords can result in devastating and life-altering injuries that can include impaired mobility, speech and/or vision, loss of mobility and sensation, impaired bowel and bladder function and paralysis/paraplegia and quadriplegia.
The spinal cord is the conduit through which our brain operates the functioning of our bodies. When the sensitive nerves in this area of our body are damaged, we lose the ability to work and take part in basic activities of daily living. Complete loss of sensation below the affected vertebrae is often an horrible consequence of these injuries, though any wound to the spinal cord can cause impairment. The following injuries are common causes of spinal cord damage:
- Injury to the lower back
- Herniated disc
- Damaged vertebrae
- Torn or sprained ligaments
- Fractured spine
