Spinal Cord Injury? We Can Help! Call 717-854-1900


The spinal cord is a soft collection of nerves that travels from the base of your brain down to your lower back. These nerves allow your brain to send messages throughout your body allowing you to move and feel touch. When your spinal cord is injured these messages are unable to reach their intended destination. If the spinal cord is completely severed, then all voluntary mobility and sense of feeling will be lost below the point where it is severed. If the spinal cord is damaged but not completely severed, then some mobility and feeling might remain after the injury. To help you better understand spinal injuries, Bare Law Firm has compiled a list of the most common spinal cord injuries and provided an explanation of the steps you should take if you suspect that you or a loved one is suffering from a spinal cord injury.

Most Common Causes:

- Auto Accidents: Trauma during a car accident often affects the head, neck, and lower back
region and can result in injury to the spinal cord.

- Sport Injuries: High impact collisions can cause injuries to the spine which can damage the spinal cord.

- Violence: Gunshots and stab wounds in the neck or spine can cause the spinal cord to be
partially or completely severed.

- Complications After Surgery: Surgeries on the spine and neck can cause unintentional
damage to spinal cord.

- Diseases: Patients suffering from diseases such as Cancer, Spina Bifida, Polio, Multiple
Sclerosis, and Cerebral Palsy can experience spinal cord injuries.

- Work related injuries

- Electrical Accidents


Symptoms:

An injury to the spinal cord will become more serious if left untreated. The initial trauma to the
spinal cord will damage or kill the nerve cells in the spinal cord, but oxygen deprivation and a
release of toxic chemicals will continue to damage the surrounding cells for the hours and days following the initial injury. If you or a loved one is experiencing any of these symptoms following a traumatic accident, then please contact a health care provider immediately.

- Unconsciousness

- Loss of movement in arms or legs

- Numbness or Tingling

- Loss of bladder control

- Difficulty walking

- Pain, pressure, stiffness in the neck or lower back

- Headaches


Long-Term Effects:

Spinal cord injuries can result in disabilities like paraplegia and quadriplegia which last a lifetime. These disabilities are life-altering and can require the permanent use of walkers and wheelchairs. Because these disabilities limit a person's movement and sense of feeling, individuals suffering from these disabilities often require assistance from friends and family members.
