Spinal Cord Injuries
Catastrophic Injuries: Spinal Cord Damage
The human body's spinal cord is a narrow, tube -shaped jumble of nerves, tissue and support cells, that extends from the brain and resides within the spinal column and is protected by the surrounding bone. The spinal cord combined with the brain make up the central nervous system which interprets incoming signals from the body's senses, and sends commands to the body in order to function. This is important to know because when the spinal cord is damaged, then part of the central nervous system is damaged, thereby possibly impairing someone's functional skills as well as various senses such as touch, and sight.
Spinal cord injuries can be life-altering in that those who suffer from them could be paralyzed, become paraplegics or even quadriplegics. Spinal cord injuries are divided into two categories; an incomplete injury can be anything that takes away some sort of functionality where a complete injury results in total loss of control and functionality.
