One of the most devastating consequences of an auto accident is spinal injury and paralysis. Severe impairments caused by the damage cause lasting effects which are often beyond words for the survivor and loved ones.
Spinal Injury Disrupts Your Body’s Basic Functions
Our spinal cord serves as our key link between brain and body. Beside our brain, it is our body’s most important component. Voluntary movements of our arms, legs, hands, and feet are all under controlled by our brain. However, each receives its directions through our spinal cord.
Similarly, our organs such as the heart, lungs, and skin, are controlled involuntarily by the brain with signals transmitted through the spinal cord. Our breathing, heart beating, and even blinking of our eyes, do what they do because our brain directs them through our spine.
Following trauma from an auto accident or vehicle crash, spinal injury may occur. When spinal injury exists, signals from your brain encounter interruptions. Moreover, these brain-to-spine messages face disruptions by spinal cord damage wherever damage exists. Accordingly, brain signals cannot reach your body and organs, resulting in paralysis. In addition, paralysis affects limbs and organs at and below a spinal injury level.

The road to recovery physically and mentally a lifelong challenge. The expense associated with care, treatment, and therapies for the spinal injury accident victim are massive and financially ruinous, but do not even come close to matching the human losses.

There are more reasons to be hopeful today than ever before. Sufferers of paralysis who are able to focus on important achievements, one small step at a time, can lead fulfilling lives. However, your road getting there is not easy. Moreover, this requires your endurance and drive and support from loved ones.
