Spinal cord injuries (SCIs) occur when a physical trauma or blow impacts the spinal cord, preventing it from carrying nerve impulses from the brain to the rest of the body. Any injury or damage to the spinal cord can impact various bodily functions and your overall health, leading to attendant care or long-term care.
Car accidents are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries, but they can also occur due to motorcycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, sports accidents, and on-the-job accidents or a birth injury. Back accidents include ailments such as herniated disks and soft tissue damage. While some injuries that don’t involve spinal cord damage may not seem serious, they can result in lifelong chronic pain.
