Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
Currently, there are an estimated 250,000 people in the U.S. living with a spinal cord injury. Auto accidents are responsible for a majority of spinal cord injury cases in Hawaii, and most of these accidents occur due to another driver’s negligent actions. It can take months and even years to recover from spinal injuries, and often the victim’s quality of life is forever altered. In the event that the spinal cord injury causes quadriplegia or paraplegia, the victim will remain disabled for the rest of his or her life.
A multitude of medical problems can accompany a spinal cord injury, including:
• Respiratory ailments
• Physical impairments (sensory and motor losses)
• Bowel and bladder complications
• Psychosocial disorders, such as severe depression
