Harm Caused by a Spine Injury
The spine is a bone structure that surrounds the spinal cord. It is comprised of numerous vertebrae that start at the base of the hips and extend into the neck. Although damaging the spine itself can be incredibly painful and cause debilitations, the worst harm usually happens when the spinal cord is damaged.
The spinal cord is a collection of nerves that control major processes throughout the body. Even a small injury on the spinal cord can have catastrophic consequences that are not only widespread but that are also permanent. Nerve tissue does not heal well on its own, so it is rare for a spinal cord or spine injury to ever fully heal.
Spinal cord damage can cause the following consequences and more:
- Numbing sensations throughout the body
- Chronic pain and discomfort
- Inability to stand for an extended period of time
The higher an injury is one the spinal cord – or the closer it is to the base of the skull – the worse the resulting paralysis will be. Cervical vertebrae damage at the neck, for example, can cause quadriplegia, which is paralysis to all four limbs and possibly to major organs.
Lifelong Care for Spine Injury Patients
To give a spine injury patient the best chances of a comfortable life, extensive medical care and rehabilitative therapies are often needed. Specialized forms of physical therapy can be used to restore mobility in some cases, for example. While we want to make certain you are fairly compensated for your injuries and pain, we will place additional focus on ensuring you are able to get lifelong care at no cost to you or your family.
