Causes of Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal cord injuries are caused by impacts that can cut or fracture ligaments, disks or vertebra along the spinal column. Because your spine contains the nerves responsible for body movement and brain function, even a small injury can result in significant damage. Spinal cord injuries are often the result of:
- Truck accidents
- Construction accidents
- Scaffolding or ladder accidents
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Slip & fall accidents
Consequences of Spinal Cord Injury
The area of your spine that has been injured will determine the effect of the injury on your body.
Consequences of spinal cord injuries include:
- Paraplegia or quadriplegia
- Loss of sensation throughout the body
- Loss of bladder and bowel control
- Breathing difficulties
- Muscle spasticity or laxity
- Sexual dysfunction
- Inability to control blood pressure
These complications can result in significant pain, limited or prohibited mobility, inability to work or engage in social activities, the need for home modifications, and expensive medical treatments. In some instances, they can also lead to death.
