Spinal cord injuries affect between 4 million and 5 million Americans annually. A catastrophic accident can cause serious damage to the cervical spine (neck) or lumbar spine (back) often resulting in permanent injury.
The spinal cord is responsible for carrying signals throughout the body. A sudden impact to the neck or back may result in a contusion (bruise) to the spinal cord. Even a minor contusion can have impactful consequences, resulting in temporary loss of function. A complete tear of the spinal cord is devastating and often results in permanent loss of sensation and functionality below the site of the injury.
