Types of Spinal Injuries
Spinal injuries are complex. The spinal cord is basically a large bundle of nerves which run down from the brain stem all the way down to the base of the spine. It is protected by the spine and runs through the centre. However, an impact in a car accident can cause damage to both the spine itself and the spinal cord.
Any damage of the spinal cord will result in paraylisis from the injury site, downwards. As a result, if yous suffer an injuries high up in the neck, your may not be able to breathe unaided. Damage to the spinal cord can somtimes be temporary if it has been badly brusied, however if your spinal cord is badly damaged or completely severed, your injuries will be permanent.
The Impact Of Spinal Injury
A spinal injury will not just affect you, but your whole family. It may mean that you can no longer live in your home, if suitable adaptations cannot be made and you may need to move. You may not be able to return to your job or in fact ever work again and you may have to face the reality of the rest of your life in a wheelchair.
