Spinal Cord Injury Q & A

What is a spinal cord injury?

A spinal cord injury involves the bundle of nerves that run down your spine. These nerves carry signals between your brain and the rest of your body. An injury within your spinal cord can disrupt these signals. The result might be paralysis, in severe cases, or a reduced ability to move or feel sensations in certain areas of your body.

What are the symptoms of a spinal cord injury?

If you experience the following signs or symptoms, you may have a spinal cord injury.

  • Loss of or altered sensations
  • Inability to feel cold, heat, or touch
  • Loss of bladder or bowel control
  • Loss of or altered movements
  • Spasms or exaggerated reflex activity
  • Pain
  • Intense stinging
  • Difficulty coughing or breathing
  • Changes in sexual sensitivity or function

If you or someone you know experiences a severe back or neck injury, call 911 right away and don’t move the injured person while you wait for help to arrive.

What causes spinal cord injuries?

Anybody can suffer from a spinal cord injury. Most commonly, spinal cord injuries are the result of trauma. Common causes include:

  • Car accidents
  • Sports injuries

  • Acts of violence
