TRAUMATIC SPINAL CORD INJURY
Motor vehicle accidents and catastrophic falls are the most common causes of physical trauma that cause irreversible damage to the spinal cord. Severe trauma to the cervical cord can results in paralysis of most of the body, including arms and legs. This type of an injury is called quadriplegia. Trauma to the upper, middle, or lower back results in paralysis of the trunk and lower extremities, called paraplegia.
Injury to the spine isn’t always obvious and may be difficult to detect. Many tests may be necessary to make a complete and full diagnosis. After the injury is stabilized, a long process of rehabilitation may be required. This process will include rehabilitation programs which will combine physical therapies with skill-building activities and counseling to provide social and emotional support. The education and active involvement of the newly injured person and his or her family and friends is crucial.
Since no two people will have the same experience and emotions associated with surviving a spinal cord injury. However, almost everyone will feel frightened, anxious, or confused about what has happened. It’s common for people, on one hand to feel relief that they are still alive, but on the other, disbelief at the nature of their injuries.
