What Is a Spinal Cord Injury?

A spinal cord injury happens when the spinal cord becomes damaged as a result of a traumatic blow to the vertebrae that causes swelling and loss of body function or mobility. According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Association, approximately 11,000 people in the United States suffer spinal injuries each year, which means almost 30 people are injured each day. The Mayo Clinic reports that the most common causes of spinal injuring in the United States are automobile accidents, acts of violence, sports and recreation accidents, and disease.

There are two kinds of spinal cord injuries:

  • Complete Injury: loss of all sensations and voluntary motor movement on either side of the body below where the site of injury
  • Incomplete Injury: partial movement or feeling after the accident occurred
