Facts regarding spinal cord injuries

There are many types of spinal cord injuries, all of which should be taken seriously and treated in the appropriate manner. Even if you are in perfect health, it is essential that you understand how your body works. This will give you a better idea of just how important the health of your spinal cord truly is.

Like many, you may be unsure of what the spinal cord does, how an injury impacts the body and the many types of treatment. Below are several facts shared by MedicineNet:

-- Trauma, such as a motor vehicle accident, is the top cause of spinal cord injury.

-- A spinal cord injury is classified as either incomplete or complete. With an incomplete injury, some function will remain below the level of the injury. In complete injuries, no function remains.

-- Early treatment, complete with immobilization, is among the most important factor in recovering from a spinal cord injury.

-- Even people with the most severe spinal cord injuries can lead a meaningful life, thanks to a variety of treatment options, including assistive devices and rehabilitation.

These are just some of the many facts associated with spinal cord injuries. If you or a loved one is dealing with such an injury, you can learn more by speaking with your Ohio medical team.

This type of injury can result from a motor vehicle accident, trip and fall or construction accident among other circumstances. The more you know about your spinal cord, the easier it is for you to realize the importance of keeping it healthy at all times.
