A spinal cord injury refers to an injury that causes damage to the spine so severe that the individual experiences loss of sensation or physical movement. Examples of spinal cord injuries include compression, contusion or spinal bruising, spinal and vertebral fractures, and herniated disks.
These injuries can cause loss of sexual function, loss of bladder control, loss of bowel control, paraplegia, and quadriplegia. Spinal cord injuries may also lead to a number of other conditions, including bedsores, severe depression, emotional trauma, respiratory problems. In addition, spinal cord injuries can make daily tasks extremely painful and even impossible.
