Common Spinal Injuries
Spinal cord injury occurs as a result of a sudden, traumatic blow to your spine that fractures, dislocates, crushes or compresses one or more of your vertebrae.
Symptoms of Spinal cord injuries:
Parts of your spinal cord transport signals from the brain to the rest of your body. Our ability to move and sense things is communicated to our body parts through the spine. Therefore, injuries to the spine are likely to impact those functions.
- Loss of movement
- Loss of sensation, including the ability to feel heat, cold and touch
- Loss of bowel or bladder control
- Exaggerated reflex activities or spasms
- Changes in sexual function, sexual sensitivity and fertility
- Pain or an intense stinging sensation caused by damage to the nerve fibers in your spinal cord
- Difficulty breathing, coughing or clearing secretions from your lungs
