Spinal cord injuries are not only tragic, they can also cause an immense fear of a life-altering change for those affected. These injuries can happen in the blink of an eye, creating a long road to recovery—and sometimes permanent injuries. Spinal cord injuries can result in an inability to control limbs and organs and can also cause loss of movement and sensation, including the ability to feel heat, cold, and touch.
These injuries can also cause:
- Difficulty breathing
- Extreme back pain
- Pressure in the neck, head, or back
- Difficulty balancing and walking
HOW SERIOUS IS A SPINAL CORD INJURY?
The consequences of a spinal cord injury depends on where the injury is on the spinal cord and the severity of the injury. The severity is often referred to as the completeness and is classified as one of the following:
- Complete Spinal Cord Injury
If all, or almost all, feeling below the injury on the spinal cord is lost, the injury is considered complete.
- Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury
If there is some sensory function, feeling, or movement below the injury on the spinal cord, it is considered an incomplete injury.
Depending on the nature of your injury, you might be affected indefinitely.
