Spinal cord injuries commonly occur during a car, truck, and bus or motorcycle accident. However, there are multiple other ways in which people’s spinal cords are injured. For example, work related injuries, head and back injuries, swimming pools, water parks and diseases that are mistreated or misdiagnosed, among other things.

What is a Spinal Cord Injury?
“A spinal cord injury (SCI) refers to any injury to the spinal cord that is caused by trauma instead of disease. Depending on where the spinal cord and nerve roots are damaged, the symptoms can vary widely, from pain to paralysis to incontinence. Spinal cord injuries are described at various levels of “incomplete”, which can vary from having no effect on the patient to a “complete” injury which means a total loss of function. Treatment of spinal cord injuries starts with restraining the spine and controlling inflammation to prevent further damage. The actual treatment can vary widely depending on the location and extent of the injury. In many cases, spinal cord injuries require substantial physical therapy and rehabilitation, especially if the patient’s injury interferes with activities of daily life.” – Wikipedia
