Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries are among the most devastating to the victim and the victim's family, because they often result in partial or complete paralysis. Most spinal cord injuries are caused by accidents. According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Association, Automobile and motorcycle accidents are the chief cause of injuries to the spine. Other causes of Spinal Cord Injuries ( SCI) are falls, sports injuries (diving is the most common cause for sports injuries), violence, and other accidents.
As a result of this injury, motor deficit, sensory deficit or bowel or bladder dysfunction may occur either, temporarily or permanently. Spinal Cord Injury victims often suffer from life long complications due to their injury including:
- loss of sensation and reflex function including autonomic activity
- dysfunction or loss of bowel and bladder control
- chronic constipation (common in 40% of spinal cord injury cases)
- hemorrhoids and bleeding
- pain or sensitivity to stimuli, muscle spasms,
- sexual dysfunction.
- secondary medical problems, such as bladder infections, lung infections, and bed sores.
A catastrophic spinal cord injury ( SCI) is emotionally devastating and can be financially overwhelming.
