Consequences of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries are particularly severe because the spinal cord controls most parts of the body. Injuries to the spinal cord may result in limitations or failure in walking, moving, eating, talking, and swallowing. Recovery from such injuries is difficult or non-existent. Consequently, people suffering spinal cord injuries may be paralyzed, unable to work, and face permanent disability. The cost is enormous to the injured person and his or her family.
