Spinal Cord Injuries Resulting in Paralysis
Paralysis is the loss of muscle function, feeling, or mobility in one or more muscle groups. When paralysis results from a spinal cord injury the damage is often constant and permanent in nature. Since the spinal cord is an integral part of the nervous system that connects our brain to our lower extremities, injury or damage to the spinal cord can very drastically affect the function in our limbs, torso, and even our breathing functions.
When spinal cord paralysis is caused by trauma to the back or spine the result is often the varying degrees of paralysis we commonly call quadriplegia or paraplegia. Since our bodies do not heal nerve cells as readily as we do other types of tissue, this spinal cord damage and resulting paralysis is usually permanent. There are many types of accidents that can result in spinal cord paralysis, but some of the more common accidents include auto accidents, slip and fall accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, workplace accidents, and accidents that stem from defective products.
