The Causes And Effects Of Back And Spinal Cord Injuries
Those who suffer spinal cord damage are likely to have been victims of 18-wheeler accidents or car accidents. People who work in construction-related or manufacturing jobs can also be at risk for sustaining serious back injuries such as slipped or herniated disks.
The most severe form of spinal injury is paralysis. While paralysis can be temporary or managed with extensive treatment, those who suffer from paraplegia or quadriplegia will likely require a lifetime of care.
