Spinal Cord Injury FAQ
What is the spinal cord?
The spinal cord is a collection of nerves that run down the spine, from the base of the brain to the hips. It is responsible for the regulation of nervous reactions and musculoskeletal control throughout most of the body. Because it is comprised of sensitive nerve tissue, the spinal cord is dramatically slow to heal. Oftentimes, it cannot heal on its own from serious damage.
What is paralysis?
Paralysis is a medical condition characterized by the loss of control over parts of the body. It is caused by damage to the nerves within or that connect to that body part. Paralysis can be permanent, temporary, total, or partial.
What is paraplegia?
Paraplegia is a form of paralysis that affects all arms and legs. Oftentimes, it also affects the abdomen and torso. The result is that the paraplegic person can only move their head and face. Paraplegia can be permanent and incurable, making it the most devastating form of paralysis.
What recovery is expected following a spinal cord injury?
Not all spinal cord injuries are permanent. With modern medical technologies and rehabilitative methods, some patients can regain some or all of their mobility and bodily functions after suffering from partial or temporary paralysis. However, severe cases of paralysis and spinal are rarely expected to heal.
