What To Expect In The Aftermath Of A Spinal Cord Injury

Being in a car accident would definitely put you at risk of suffering from a spinal cord injury. As such, knowing the symptoms of a spinal cord injury would definitely prevent you from doing anything to further jeopardize your situation. This type of injury is especially serious because of how fragile the spinal cord is. Any sudden movements in the wrong direction could result in permanent damage. If you are suffering from a spinal cord injury as a result of an accident that is not your fault, you should consult a good personal injury lawyer to be advised about what your next best course of action should be. 

Signs that You Have a Spinal Cord Injury 

When it comes to a spinal cord injury, the first sign that comes to everyone’s head is back pain. This is a common symptom but it is definitely not the only one. Some of the other symptoms will be listed below: 

  • Uncontrollable tics or reflexes
  • Paralysis of areas in your body or parts below the spinal cord
  • Numbness or lack of feeling in any part of your body 
  • Muscle spasms
  • Difficulty in walking 
  • Difficulties breathing 

Being aware of all the symptoms above could make all the difference between life and death. If you realize that you are suffering from any of these symptoms, make sure that you call for an ambulance and do not attempt to move. When the paramedics arrive, describe how your symptoms feel. 

Potential Problems that Spinal Cord Injuries Can Cause 

Many victims of spinal cord injuries might see that their lives might change forever. One of the worst things that can happen after suffering a spinal cord is the complete loss of function of various body parts such as the limbs. There have been many people who have lost all forms of sensation below the injury site and this has resulted in paralysis. Being paralyzed would mean that the patient might never be able to work again or have a normal high-quality life. If you are affected in this manner, your family might also be burdened by the financial costs and the emotional trauma that comes with it. 

Furthermore, people with spinal injuries might also suffer from other health complications such as pneumonia, sexual dysfunction, bedsores and circulatory problems.
