How serious are incomplete spinal injuries?

When you think of spinal injuries and paralysis, you may imagine someone who can't walk or feel their body. The truth is that catastrophic injuries to the spinal column and spinal cord can have a varied outcome. For some, partial paralysis, also called incomplete paralysis, is the result after a car crash or other serious accident.

Catastrophic injuries are any injuries that severely impact your life. They might include things like traumatic brain injuries or incomplete or complete spinal cord injuries. Something to remember about these injuries is that they're so severe that they are also bound to be expensive.

Catastrophic injuries: Know what you can expect

Catastrophic injuries are different than other kinds because they leave you with devastating damage to your mind or body. You might have a traumatic brain injury, paralysis or have to go through an amputation. Catastrophic injuries often result in permanent disability.

What should you know about spinal injuries?

Spinal injuries are among the worst. They can lead to debilitating pain and threaten your ability to walk, use your arms or even control your own vital organs. When the spinal cord is damaged, time is of the essence. The sooner you receive care, the better the outlook will be.

Casino tragedy highlights how life-altering an injury can be

When people think of serious injuries they often think of physical therapy sessions, body casts, wheelchairs and mourning. They rarely look into the future to truly weigh the extent of the damage: the lost income, the pain and suffering, the stress on family and friends. Tragedy is life altering for everyone it touches. It’s a rare accident where the doctors stitch up a wound and everyone walks back to into their routine.

Spine injuries don't all end in paralysis

When we here the phrase spinal cord injury, our thoughts immediately flip to a person in a bed or wheelchair, paralyzed from the neck or waist down. The reality, however, is often quite different. Not all injuries to the spine result in long-term or permanent paraplegia or quadriplegia. But the spinal column is the conduit for our body's central nervous system to and from the brain. That means that every injury to the spine must be taken seriously, for both immediate treatment and long-term rehabilitation.
