Facts about Spinal Cord Injuries
A spinal cord injury, whether temporary or permanent, affects the nerves located at the area of the spine which has been impacted. As a result, all corresponding body areas which they affect will be impaired. How seriously they are impaired will depend on the severity of the spinal cord damage. Damage sustained at the neck can result in loss of function in the limbs, muscles, and body parts below the neck (quadriplegia). Damage occurring at the chest or lower back level can result in the loss of the use of one’s legs (paraplegia). These conditions are also accompanied by such disabilities as loss of bladder and bowel control and loss of sexual ability. Temporary spinal cord injuries may consist of spinal contusions, swelling, and temporary loss of muscle function and sensation which may be wholly or partially restored. According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of these types of injuries, followed by falls, instances of violence such as gunshot wounds, and sports and recreational events. First-year medical costs alone for such injuries range from $340,787 to $1,044,197 depending on the nature of the damage.
