About Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are usually caused by a sudden blow — like an auto accident or motorcycle accident — that fractures or dislocates vertebrae. While most injuries do not sever the spinal cord, they cause damage that prevents the nerves in the spinal cord from relaying messages below the level of the injury. Spinal cord injury victims with an incomplete injury often have some amount of sensation below the damaged area.

Treatment of a spinal cord injury usually includes medical approaches like neurosurgery and extensive rehabilitation therapy. It may include learning new ways to accomplish daily tasks and adjust to a way of life that has permanently changed.
