Common Spinal Injuries And What You May Need To Recover
Severe injuries to the spine, neck and brain can happen in a variety of situations. A traumatic spinal cord injury often stems from a sudden blow to your spine that fractures, dislocates, crushes or compresses one or more of your vertebrae. Because your spine is an integral part of how your body functions, a neck, spine or brain injury can affect you for the rest of your life. Common types of spinal cord injuries may include:
- Contusion (bruising of the spinal cord)
- Compression (caused by pressure on the spinal cord)
- Lacerations (severing or tearing of some nerve fibers, such as damage caused by a gunshot wound
- Central cord syndrome (specific damage to the corticospinal tracts of the cervical region of the spinal cord).
If your spine has been injured, recovery may involve rehabilitation, hospitalization, ongoing medical care, mobility devices, lost income, counseling and other recovery tools. These can be expensive but are necessary for your health and well-being. At Sarkisian Personal Injury Lawyers, we want you to have access to the help you need to recover.
