It’s terrifying to think that one day you could walk out of your house, get into a serious accident, and never walk again. Unfortunately, this happens more often than you might think. When people sustain spinal cord injuries, their ability to move and experience sensation can be deeply impacted. As a result, they might require additional care or be unable to work.
Spinal cord injuries are typically the result of a sudden, traumatic blow to the spine. When the vertebrae in your spine fracture or become dislocated, displaced organic material (bone fragments, discs, and ligaments) can damage the spinal cord. This damage can crush or destroy axons, which are the nerve cells that carry signals between your brain and the rest of your body. Without working axons, you might experience varying degrees of paralysis.
