What is the Spinal Cord?
The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that carries nerve impulses from and to the brain to the rest of the body for voluntary movements such as moving your fingers and toes and involuntary movements such as breathing.
WHAT IS A SPINAL CORD INJURY?
A spinal cord injury occurs when damage caused to the spinal cord leads to impaired functions, loss of feeling or mobility. The spinal cord does not have to be severed for loss of functioning to occur.
When someone is involved in a serious car accident, damage to the spinal column can occur in a variety of different ways. Also traumatic motor vehicle or motorcycle accidents will quite often cause pieces of vertebrae to tear into the tissue of the spinal cord and interrupt parts of the nerves that carry signals and communicate with the rest of the body. Typically, the higher in the spinal column the injury occurs, the more dysfunction a person will experience. Essentially, the degree of paralysis will be dependent on the region of the spinal cord that is injured.
