What Are The Causes Of A Serious Injury?
What are the long-term effects of a spinal injury?
Spinal injuries can vary in severity and recovery time. The injuries can lead to temporary or persistent backache, mobility problems or, in extreme cases, paralysis.
Less severe injuries can have a reasonably straightforward recovery time. Bed rest or time off work can sometimes alleviate the pressure on the spine and allow it the chance to recover naturally.
In some cases, recovery becomes more of a case of condition management, because severe spinal injuries can have a number of different physical effects upon a person. Loss of movement or loss of control over limbs or bodily functions can be a direct result of a spinal injury.
Severe spinal injuries can also have a neurological impact. Patient.co.uk lists depression and suicidal feelings as potential major issues affecting people suffering from severe spinal cord injuries.
