Spinal Cord Injury

Over 10,000 people in the United States suffer a spinal cord injury each year. These are also known as an SCI. Any damage to the spinal cord that results in loss of mobility or function is commonly referred to as a spinal cord injury. These injuries are most often caused by trauma but can be caused by disease. These injuries can result in temporary or permanent loss of movement (paralysis), loss of sensation, or loss of bowel or bladder control. These injuries primarily result from automobile accidents but violence-related accidents have been increasingly the cause of SCI’s. Falls and sports accidents also cause SCI’s.
