Spinal Cord Disorders & Trauma

Spinal Cord Trauma 

Spinal cord injuries involve damage to, or a partial or complete severance of, the spinal cord, often due to fractured or dislocated vertebrae. As with other head and neck injuries, prompt medical attention can help reduce and even prevent complications from a spinal cord injury. If you suspect or are unsure whether someone has experienced spinal trauma, call 911 immediately and do not move the person’s head or neck until paramedics arrive.

Watch for symptoms indicative of a spinal cord injury, including:

  • Paralysis on any portion of the body
  • Loss of feeling
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Coordination difficulty
  • Loss of bladder or bowel control
