I Have Seriously Injured my Spine. What Should I Expect?
Auto accidents, truck accidents, construction site injuries, and incidents of violence – these are just a few of the ways a serious injury to the spine can occur.
Dealing with spinal injuries is often life changing, as many injuries to the spine are chronic in nature. This means that while spinal cord injuries range in severity, they generally do not fully heal. Because the spinal cord houses a flexible network of nerves that extends down the full length of the spine itself, the worst of these injuries can result in diagnoses such as paralysis, quadriplegia and paraplegia.
Symptoms of spinal injuries vary greatly depending on the location of the injury, amongst several other factors. Potential symptoms of a spinal injury may include one or more of the following:
- Increased muscle tone (spasticity)
- Weakness, paralysis
- Loss of normal bowel and bladder control (may include constipation, incontinence, bladder spasms)
- Sensory changes
- Extreme pain
Ultimately, the proper diagnosis of your injury is necessary to understand your proper health care as well as the legal ramifications of your potential case.
