COMMON CAUSES OF SPINAL CORD INJURIES

A spinal cord injury is generally a result of a traumatic occurrence or blow to the spinal cord.

According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, the most common causes of spinal cord injuries are:

  • Automobile accidents
  • Falls from moderate to high distances
  • Acts of aggression, such as a gunshot wound to the back
  • Contact sports activities, such as football or rugby
  • Medical malpractice
  • Workplace accidents, such as in a construction site
  • Stab wounds
  • Diving board accidents

TYPES OF SPINAL CORD INJURIES

Spinal cord injuries can vary extensively in their severity and level of pain and damaged caused to the victim. Generally, it is damage to one’s spinal cord that results in partial or complete loss of motor controls and sensations. After a spinal cord injury, your capacity to control your arms and legs is contingent on two different factors: at what point along your spinal cord the injury occurred and the severity and extent of the spinal cord injury. The neurological level of the damage refers to the lowest part of your spinal cord that is still considered medically “normal” after the accident. The “completeness” of the injury refers to how serious the injury is.

Completeness can be classified in two groups:

  • Complete – A spinal cord injury is considered to be medically “complete” if the injured person has lost almost all sensory feeling and ability to control movement (also known as “motor function“). In other words, you have lost complete control over movement and cannot really experience most physical sensations.
  • Incomplete – When a spinal cord injury leaves the injured individual with some sensory or motor function below the area(s) affected by the accident, it is referred to as a medically “incomplete” spinal cord injury.

In addition, paralysis from a spinal cord injury may be referred to as:

  • Tetraplegia or quadriplegia – Your legs, arms, hands, and pelvic area organs are all affected by the spinal cord injury.
  • Paraplegia – Paralysis affects all or part of the torso, pelvic area organs, and legs.

EMERGENCY SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF A SPINAL CORD INJURY

After an accident, it is critical that you watch for the following signs and symptoms of a spinal cord injury:

  • Intense pain or pressure in your neck, head, or back
  • Reduced coordination, weakness, or paralysis anywhere in your body
  • Numbness, tingling, or loss of sensation in your toes, feet, fingers, or hands
  • Reduction of ability to move or feel
  • Loss of bowel or bladder control or function
  • Difficulty with walking and balance in general
  • Hard time breathing after the injury
  • An abnormally positioned or twisted back or neck

Even an apparently minor accident can lead to a catastrophic spinal cord injury. It is critical to seek professional medical help if you even suspect you have a spinal cord injury.

WHEN TO SEE A DOCTOR

In any and every situation where someone suffers considerable trauma to either their head, neck, back, or anywhere near the spinal cord, they should seek immediate professional medical care and be fully evaluated for a possible spinal injury. If one doctor does not think you have an injury but you are still worried, get a second opinion. It is your right, and it is better to be safe than sorry.

In truth, it is always better to assume that a victim has suffered a spinal cord injury until it can be proven otherwise. Because a dangerous spinal cord injury is not always obviously apparent, they are to be considered insidious, and treated with seriousness. If a spinal cord injury is not recognized immediately, a far more serious injury is likely occur, compounding the overall suffering a victim will go through. Paralysis or numbness could be immediately present following the injury, or they may come on gradually as bleeding and swelling begin to occur in and around the spinal cord. In addition, the amount of time between the victim’s injury and getting professional medical help can be critical in determining the severity of complications and the amount of physical recovery possible.
