In an Instant, Your Life Is Changed Forever
A spinal cord injury can change your life forever. Spinal cord injuries can result in a paraplegic injury below the site of the damage. Injury to the spine occurred in the lower back can cause paraplegia — the loss of feeling and function in the legs. If the spinal cord was damaged in the cervical vertebrae of the neck, the result may be quadriplegia — paralysis of legs, arms and chest muscles that control breathing.
Eighty-five percent of people with spinal cord injuries who survive the first 24 hours after the accident are still alive 10 years later. But the costs of living with a spinal cord injury can be crushing. The estimated lifetime cost of a severe cervical spinal cord injury that occurred at age 25 is more than $2.9 million, according to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center.
