Effects of a Spinal Cord Injury in Car Accidents
The human body was never intended to endure the extreme forces that take place during a car accident. It is the weakest parts of our fragile bodies that break under the blunt force trauma that of an accident. And in many instances, this means our spines.
Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries come in many forms. Our spines are actually a series of well-placed discs that are stacked on top of each other. When a spinal cord injury occurs because of a car accident it is these discs and the areas around them that break.
It is important to remember that a spinal cord injury can happen anywhere along a person’s spine. Common injuries occur around the lumbar region, while some of the most dangerous injuries can occur close to the head and neck.
Treatment for spinal cord injuries often depends on where the damage is. Plus a victim of a spinal cord injury can have many damaged areas around their spine.
