Close to 11,000 people suffer a spinal cord injury each year in the United States, with many experiencing severe chronic pain, paralysis and even death. The cause is generally trauma, a sudden blow or impact to the spine that fractures or dislocates vertebrae.

Injury to the spinal cord, which consists of a bundle of nerves that runs from the base of the brain and down the back, can result in loss of sensation and movement, including paralysis of all four limbs, or quadriplegia, and paralysis of the lower half of the body, paraplegia.

 

In general, victims also tend to have shorter lifespans. Additional health problems include bladder and bowel complications, inability to regulate blood pressure, reduced control of body temperature, chronic pain and increased susceptibility to respiratory disease.

Motor vehicle accidents account for nearly half of all spinal cord injuries, followed by falls, violence (primarily gun shots), and sports accidents. In many cases, the injury is the fault of another, whether the driver of a car or truck, a defective product or a neglected or hazardous property.
