Spinal cord injury oftentimes is a result of very serious damage that can occur during a motor vehicle accident. Extremely dangerous, they should be taken care of immediately, and normally require hospital stays to evaluate the extent of the injury.
A minor injury can weaken the spinal cord, but oftentimes due to the force contained within a collision, the damage is much more serious. Clotting, swelling, and loss of feeling can contribute to the severity, and can in turn further damage the cord.
This damage can also be located at a variety of places within the spinal region- namely in the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar regions of the back. However, all of these can cause extreme pain and damage to the surrounding areas, and in some cases, cause paralysis.
