About Spinal Injuries
About 17,500 spinal injuries happen each year and roughly 40% happen from car accidents.
Spinal cord injuries have wide-ranging effects, which can even be fatal. These injuries and their symptoms fall into two general categories:
- Incomplete spinal cord injuries, whose damage varies depending on the extent of the harm caused.
- Complete spinal cord injuries, which result in absolutely no function below the point of the injury.
With an incomplete injury, you keep some of your functioning below the point of the injury. For example, you may be able to move one limb more than another or feel parts of your body that you cannot move.
In the case of a complete injury, you have absolutely no sensation and no voluntary movement below the point of the injury.
Thanks to advances in medical technology, more spinal injuries than ever before are now incomplete.
The symptoms of spinal cord injuries can include:
- Weakness or paralysis on one side of your body and loss of sensation on the other (Brown Sequard syndrome or BSS)
- Loss of fine motor skills in your fingers and paralysis in your arms, along with loss of functioning of your legs, and possible bladder control and sexual function loss (Central cord syndrome)
- A general loss of sensation and movement (Anterior cord syndrome)
- Losing sensation and movement in your legs (Paraplegia)
- Paralysis of all your limbs (Quadriplegia)
- Loss of mobility and sensation in one arm and both of your legs (Triplegia)
Other injuries, like those that happen to the lumbar region of your spine, simply cause nerve pain and reduced functionality of your limbs.
If you experience any of these symptoms following a car accident, slip-and-fall, or violent attack, seek medical help immediately.
