Examining the Devastating Effects a Catastrophic Injury

Spinal cord injuries are caused by sustaining trauma, as opposed to a disease. The symptoms of a spinal cord injury vary widely depending upon where the spinal cord and nerve roots are damaged; therefore, the symptoms can range from pain to paralysis to incontinence, depending on the site of the injury. Spinal cord injuries have numerous causes, but are typically associated with car accidents, motorcycle accidents, construction accidents and falls. The patient's ability to control their limbs after a spinal cord injury depends on the site of the injury along the spinal cord and the severity of the injury to this area.

If almost all feeling and ability to control movement below the spinal cord injury is lost, the injury is called "complete." If the patient has some motor or sensory function below the affected area, the injury is called "incomplete." Paralysis from a spinal cord injury may also be referred to as tetraplegia or quadriplegia—which means that the arms, hands, trunk, legs and pelvic organs have all been affected by the injury. Paraplegia is paralysis that affects all or part of the trunk, legs and pelvic organs.

Spinal cord injuries may result in any of the following symptoms:

  • Loss of movement
  • Loss of sensation, including the ability to feel hot and cold
  • Loss of bladder or bowel control
  • Exaggerated reflexes or spasms
  • Changes in sexual function and fertility
  • Difficulty coughing, breathing or expelling secretions from the lungs

If you've been involved in an accident and you experience extreme back pain; extreme pressure in the head, neck or back; numbness or tingling or loss of sensation in your hands, fingers, feet or toes; loss of bladder or bowel control; difficulty walking or balancing; difficulties breathing; or an oddly twisted neck or back, then contact your doctor right away and schedule a medical evaluation to uncover the possibility of a spinal cord injury.
