Spinal Cord Injuries: Little-Known Ways They Can Result

Spinal Cord Injuries: Little-Known Ways They Can ResultThe spinal cord is an intricate and important part of the human body. It is a bundle of nerves that carries signals to and from the brain and the body. Those who suffer damage to their spinal cord lose this ability, often resulting in loss of motor and/or sensory function. It can also result in partial or complete paralysis.

These types of injuries can happen for a number of reasons and vary in severity from patient to patient. Some may experience temporary symptoms while others could be facing lifelong symptoms.

They are also categorized as complete and incomplete. An incomplete spinal cord injury will leave a victim with some feeling and sensation below the point of injury and does not always cause paralysis. A complete spinal cord injury means loss of all function below the point of injury and will cause paralysis. Incomplete spinal cord injuries are more common than complete injuries.

Spinal Cord Injuries Require Immediate Medical Attention

As mentioned earlier, there are many different ways someone could suffer spinal cord injury. Many people are already aware of the two most common ways this could happen: car accidents and slip and fall accidents.

Car accidents account for about 38 percent of spinal cord injuries while slip and fall accidents make up 30.5 percent. Of course, these are not the only causes though.

Less common ways include acts of violence, sports and for medical or surgical reasons.

A spinal cord injury resulting from an act of violence is typically because the violence was aggressive. It could be an assault where someone beat up another person or it could be assault with a weapon. Blows or gunshots to the back could result in a spinal cord injury.

Sports can also result in spinal cord injuries, especially ones that are high-contact, like football or hockey. The collisions that occur between players consistently, can often times lead to trauma to the spinal cord.

Medical reasons for a spinal cord injury could be a degenerative disease, infections, cancer or other medical conditions. When it is surgical, it could be a medical professional’s error that results in a spinal cord injury.

Regardless of the cause, a spinal cord injury is severe and can have a long-lasting impact. It requires immediate medical attention and maybe even lifelong medical aid. If you suffered a spinal cord injury at the hands of someone else, there is legal action you can pursue.
