A spinal cord injury occurs when a traumatic event causes damage to the cells within the spinal cord or severs the nerve tracts that relay signals throughout the body. When a spinal cord or severe neck injury occurs, the affected area may lose sensation or the ability to function.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 200,000 Americans are affected with a spinal cord injury, and there are about 11,000 new cases of spinal injuries each year. The most common causes of spinal injuries are motor vehicle accidents, followed by violence and falls.
