Spinal Cord Injuries

The brain is indeed one of the most important organs of the body. But then, it’s just that; one of many. This means there are a few others. One of these “few others” is the spinal cord. How much do you know about your spinal cord and its importance in your life?

The brain and spinal cord are what you may consider adjoined twins. They work together hand in hand and without one, the other fails. While the brain controls all body functions up to and including your ability to walk, the spinal cord transports signals from the brain to the body organs, and these signals include instructions, distress, and emotions. You’ll not be able to feel pain if the information doesn’t travel from the brain to your injury point. You’ll not be able to walk if the instruction doesn’t travel from the brain to your legs. The spinal cord, therefore, is one large highway in your body without which almost all body functions fail. That’s how important it is.

Spinal cord injuries are of different magnitudes, but in most cases, they inhibit your ability to do anything from the point of injury, going downwards. This means that the brain will only be able to send signals and instructions to the point of injury, where it’ll face an obstacle and therefore fail to proceed. In worse cases, spinal cord injuries lead to death.

Causes

The causes of spinal cord injuries are not too different from those that cause brain injuries. Accidents of any kind can cause spinal cord injuries, and the common ones are:

  • Road accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Surgical accidents

The big question here is usually on whether or not the accident was caused due to someone’s actions or omissions.

What We Will Do

Spinal cord injuries are so serious and need urgent medical attention. If attended to as soon as they happen, your chances of permanent incapacitation will reduce. However, if you take too long to get professional medical assistance, then you may lose your ability to walk among other body functions, and may even die in the worst-case scenario.
