Spine Injury

Spine injuries affect nearly 11,000 Americans each year, often as a result of vehicle accidents, acts of violence, slip and fall accidents, recreational sporting activities, birth injuries, and medical malpractice. These injuries are serious and typically require extensive surgeries, rehabilitation, and considerable recovery time. There are several types of spine injury, including:

  • Neck injury, or cervical spine injury, often as a result of whiplash or car accidents
  • Thoracic injury, or mid-back injury
  • Lumbar injury, or lower back injury, often as a result of falling
  • Spine injuries can include the vertebra or the spinal cord. Injuries to one or both can determine the extent of movement and damage inflicted on the body based on the location of the injury. Paraplegia refers to paralysis below the chest or waist. In short, a paraplegic lacks some or all function of the legs, feet and some lower body muscles, but retains good movement and control of muscles above the waist. Quadriplegia affects all control the legs, feet, arms, hands and trunk muscles. People suffering from spinal cord injuries face a unique set of challenges after their injury. In addition to the psychological trauma of such a devastating injury, paralysis victims face reduced mobility, greater dependence on others, involuntary control of the bladder and bowel, kidney and bladder stones, and muscle spasms.
