Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
It is estimated that more than 10,000 new spinal cord injuries occur each year.
Some of the causes of spinal cord injury include:
- Work-related injuries
- Automobile accidents
- Slips and falls
- Gun violence
- Sports-related accidents
Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
Nearly all spinal cord injuries are incredibly serious. Victims and their families often have to deal with permanent disabilities and the implications such disabilities have, including an inability to work or even carry out normal everyday routines.
Some specific—and often serious—spinal cord injuries include:
- General Spinal Cord Injury: A severely injured spinal cord may result in loss of motion or feeling to the lower extremities or permanent paralysis (inability to control the muscles that move your body).
- Slipped Disc: This occurs when pads of the cartilage between the vertebrae becomes damaged or herniated.
- Whiplash: Whiplash occurs when the neck snaps or is moved violently and becomes overextended (most common neck injury in auto accidents).
- Compression Fracture: When the bones of the spine break due to severe trauma, it is known as a compression fracture.
This is only a short list of some of the tragic, life-changing effects a spinal cord injury can have on a patient.
