Spinal cord injuries are caused by damage to the spinal cord. The spinal cord includes a bundle of nerves housed in the “backbone” or spinal column. These essential nerves are tasked with transporting messages between your body and brain. Spinal cord injuries can have serious ramifications, such as the partial or full loss of sensation and motor control.
Many spinal cord injuries leave victims paralyzed in the lower parts of their body (paraplegic) or in all four limbs (quadriplegia). The spinal cord plays a vital role in a long list of normal bodily functions, such as sexual functioning, bladder, body temperature, and breathing. Accident victims may be left to deal with an array of serious and permanent health problems.
