A Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) is damage or trauma to the spinal cord that results in a loss or impaired function causing decreased mobility or feeling. The spinal cord does not have to be severed for a loss of functioning to occur.
Spinal cord injuries can result in paralysis, spasms, damage to the spinal area, and other serious and painful problems. This type of injury can occur as a result of, among other things, car accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, boating accidents, construction or workplace accidents.
Spinal cord injuries require a significant time off work (or even permanently), and most require complex specialized treatment and rehabilitation. When a spinal cord injury results in permanent injury, in addition to initial treatment patients may require a lifetime of specialized care and assistance. They may need to make their entire home accessible. They may need a lifetime of care giving and medication. They may need medical equipment in the home.
