Your back is critical to everyday activities. It is made up of sensitive bones, muscles, ligaments, and other tissues that stretch from your pelvis to your neck.
Your spinal cord carries nerve impulses between your brain and the rest of your body.
Trauma to the spinal cord results in the loss of feeling or mobility.
Complete spinal cord injury is when the victim loses all ability to feel or move body parts below the level of injury. In incomplete spinal cord, the victim has some feeling.
Paraplegia involves paralysis of the legs and lower body. Quadriplegia and tetraplegia involve the loss of use of all four limbs and the torso.
Common back injuries include:
Many spinal cord injuries are irreversible. With aggressive therapy, however, some victims are able to regain movement.
Surgery may be required to stabilize your spine or remove bone fragments.
Rehabilitation using new technologies such as electrical stimulation devices, functional electrical stimulation (FES) systems, and robotic gait training (such as ReWalk) may help you get back some mobility.
