What Is a Spinal Injury?

The spinal cord consists of nerves that transmit impulses to and from the brain around the rest of the human body.

The Cleveland Clinic describes spinal cord injuries as direct or indirect damage to the spine or “the bones, soft tissues, and vessels surrounding the spinal cord.”

Aside from back pain, which can be caused by pinched nerves or ruptured discs, spinal cord injuries can cause permanent changes in strength, sensation, and other functions. This occurs throughout bodily, and particularly in regions below where the injury happened.

You could be experiencing limited motor skills, mobility, lost sensation, and other physical restrictions. As a result, this can have a lasting impact on the body and a person’s mental state.

What Causes Spinal Cord Injuries?

Direct impact on the spinal cord can displace and disconnect spinal nerves. Therefore, this can result in physical pain, neurological abnormalities, and loss of body functions.

The primary causes for spinal cord injuries in Ohio, include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Industrial accidents
  • Assault
  • Sports accidents
  • Weakened backbones due to conditions such as arthritis and spina bifida

Symptoms of Spinal Cord Injuries

Unless the trauma was significant, a spinal cord injury may not be instantly recognizable. According to the Mayo Clinic, spinal cord injury symptoms include:

  • Loss of bowel movements
  • Paralysis, even minor loss of mobility
  • Loss of sensation
  • Tingling
  • Weakness of back or limbs
  • Limb incoordination
  • Impaired breathing

If you are experiencing any of these, you should contact a medical professional immediately.

The Cost of Spinal Cord Injuries

The Dana and Christopher Reeves Foundation, estimates the cost of living with a significant spinal injury is over a million dollars. This includes spinal cord surgeries, trauma care, rehab, medication, medical equipment, and other expenses associated with treating spinal injuries.

In addition, the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates the US spends $9.7 million annually on spinal cord injuries.

Virtually no one is prepared to deal with such costs alone. KNR can help you evaluate your situation and what you will need to recover.

Let us file your claim and document your losses. This can be the difference in getting the best care possible.

Long Term Effects of Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries can cause serious and long-term damage. For instance, you may be in physical pain, unable to work work, going into debt, or unable to fully participate in your life.

Spinal damage often requires major surgery and months of physical therapy. Long-term bed rest after spinal cord injuries also results in a high number of patients suffering from complications like pressure sores.

In some cases, your limitations can be permanent or lead to life-threatening illnesses.

While institutions, like the Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Spine Health and other organizations, are pursuing better treatment for spinal injuries, the ability to fully treat your spinal cord injury may depend on your level of injury.
