It is estimated that more than 10,000 new spinal cord injuries occur each year. Spinal cord injuries can be life-changing events. Victims and their families often have to deal with permanent disabilities such as paraplegia, quadriplegia and myelopathy. A spinal cord injury is defined as damage to the spinal cord that results in loss of function such as mobility or feeling. For example, in an auto accident, your spinal cord may be compressed or severed resulting in serious injuries and death. Some causes of spinal cord injury are:
Car accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, etc.

  • Slip, trip and falls
  • Defective products
  • Work-related injuries (ie construction site accidents)
  • Diving accidents
  • Sports-related accidents
  • Gun violence

The resulting spine injury, neck injury or back injury may include:

  • Spinal cord injury – Nerve damage due to a spinal cord severely injured that may result in loss of motion or feeling to the lower extremities or permanent paralysis (inability to control the muscles that move your body)
  • Slipped disc – Pads of the cartilage in between the vertebrae become damaged or herniated
  • Whiplash – Neck snaps and becomes overextended (most common neck injury in car accidents)
  • Compression Fracture – The bones of the spine break due to severe trauma
