A spinal injury typically occurs as a result of traumatic impact to the back, resulting in damage to the cells within the spinal cord. Any kind of impact to a person’s back can have serious long-term consequences because the body’s sensations and movements are controlled by the spinal cord. Moreover, the spinal cord delivers messages between the brain and the body, meaning that spinal trauma can prevent the brain from communicating with the rest of the body.
The most common types of spinal cord injuries include damage to the neck, upper back, middle back, hips and tailbone. If you or a loved one has been involved in any kind of accident, whether it is a car accident or a slip & fall, it is important to be on the lookout for the signs and symptoms of a serious spinal cord injury. Certain symptoms to watch for include extreme back pain, neck pain, headaches, numbness in the extremities, difficulty walking or maintaining balance, trouble breathing, loss of sensation anywhere in the body, loss of bowel control and muscle spasms.
