What Is a Spine Injury?
The spine is a long column of bones that runs down the back of the human body. It supports the head, neck, and upper body, and it is responsible for connecting the brain to the rest of the body. A spinal cord injury occurs when the spine is injured and the spinal cord is damaged. This can cause a wide range of disabilities, including paralysis, loss of sensation, and loss of motor functions.
Spinal cord injuries can occur in many ways, including:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Violent blows to the back
- Diving accidents
- Slips and falls
Spinal cord injuries can range from mild to severe, and they can often cause permanent disabilities. In some cases, the victim may be paralyzed below the point of impact. In other cases, the victim may suffer a loss of sensation or motor functions below the point of impact.
What Are the Most Common Types of Spine Injuries?
The most common types of spinal cord injuries include:
- Complete spinal cord injury: Complete loss of all motor and sensory functions
- Incomplete spinal cord injury: Partial loss of motor and sensory functions
- Cervical spine injury: Injury to the neck vertebrae
- Degree of injury: The severity of the injury
Injuries can range from mild to severe. A mild injury may cause temporary numbness or tingling in the area below the point of impact. A severe injury may cause total paralysis below the point of impact, loss of sensation below the point of impact, or total loss of motor functions below the point of impact.
What Are the Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries?
Spinal cord injuries can result from many types of accidents, including:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
