Causes and Effects of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries are a common occurrence in car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents and other motor vehicle accidents. The traumatic head trauma often seen in sport-related injuries can leave an athlete struggling to adapt to a life without the mobility to which he or she has become accustomed. Physical abuse and violent sexual abuse are some of the most heart-wrenching reasons why individuals are left with spinal cord injuries and other types of injuries. Debilitating spinal cord injuries can also be seen in swimming pool accidents caused by an individual diving into the shallow end of the pool. The effects of a spinal cord injury are not only physical, but may be psychological as well. In many spinal cord injury cases, the most devastating consequence will be a partial or total paralysis which can bring about a loss of movement, a loss of sensation, increased and exaggerated muscle spasms, a lack of sexual function and incapacitating pain.
