The back, neck and spine are extremely complex structures that act as the body’s core support mechanism.
Spinal cord injuries usually begin with a blow that fractures or dislocates your vertebrae, the bone disks that make up your spine and protect your spinal cord.
Injuries to the back, neck and spinal cord are some of the most devastating causing severe damage that can lead to permanent life-threatening conditions like paralysis.

Some serious long-term conditions that can result from a spinal cord injury include paralysis, paraplegia and quadriplegia. All of these conditions require a lifetime of care and can be extremely costly for the victim and their family.
Not all traumatic spinal cord injuries are a result of a sudden, dramatic hit to the spine, other damages can be degenerative/chronic. An injury from a sudden hit can result in the spinal cord becoming dislocated, fractured or consist of compression. The direct and sharp impact can result in a spinal cord wound completely severing the cord. These injuries can occur during a car crash, bike accident and even sport related accident.
There are multiple symptoms that can occur following an accident, including:
- Difficulty walking, moving arms or possibly even paralysis
- Head in an unusual position
- Loss of bladder or bowel control
- Stiff neck pain, neck or headache
- Tingling sensation or numbness, spreading into an arm or leg
