Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries occur when a traumatic event results in damage to the spinal cord or severs the nerve tracts that relay signals up and down the spinal cord. The most common types of spinal cord injuries include:
- Contusions (bruising of the spinal cord)
- Compressions (caused by pressure on the spinal cord)
- Lacerations (severing or tearing of nerve fibers)
- Central cord syndrome (specific damage to the corticospinal tracts of the cervical region of the spinal cord)
Severe spinal cord injuries often cause paralysis (loss of control over voluntary movement and muscles of the body), and a loss of sensation and reflex function below the point of injury. Spinal cord injuries can result in a number of ancillary medical conditions that can develop over time, including breathing difficulties, lung infections, bowel and bladder control problems, bladder infections, bed sores, pain or sensitivity to stimuli, muscle spasms, and sexual dysfunction.
Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

- Auto accidents
- Trucking accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Construction accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Bus accidents
- Train accidents
- Aviation accidents
