Spinal Cord Injury Statistics

In the United States, there are around 200,000 people living with spinal cord injuries. It’s estimated that more than 12,000 people will become victims of spinal cord injuries every year. 80% of those victims will be male and up to 70% of them will be under the age of 35. The cost of treatment can be as much as $30,000 per patient every year.

The Effects & Symptoms of a Spinal Cord Injury

The spinal cord consists of millions of nerves that link your brain to the rest of your body. When the spinal cord is damaged, the body stops receiving signals from the brain, resulting in paralysis or loss of sensation. Depending on where the injury hits the spinal cord, the body below that point may no longer be functional. There are also two tracts—one ascending and one descending—that carry information to the brain and sends signals back to the rest of the body. In the event of a complete spinal cord injury, both tracts will be damaged, which means both sides of the body are equally affected.

In a medical evaluation, physicians will look for the following signs of a spinal cord injury:

  • Loss of sensation in the limbs
  • Muscle contractions
  • Fractured or dislocated vertebrae
  • Paralysis or low muscle strength
  • Loss of normal bowel or bladder control

What Are the Main Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries?

Besides physical assault and gunshot wounds, the leading causes for spinal cord injuries include:

  • Motor vehicle collisions
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Construction site accidents
  • Sports accidents

Spinal Cord Injury Treatment Options

Extensive surgery and treatment are usually required to reduce tissue swelling and remove fluid or reset bones. Once the patient has been deemed ready, rehabilitation can begin. These programs often involve relearning motor skills and practicing techniques to adapt their disability to daily life.

In addition, medical technology has been developed to assist spinal cord injury patients, including:

  • Electronic wheelchairs that can move over unstable ground or climb stairs
  • Computers that use voice recognition or key guards
  • Voice-activated electronic aids for doing household chores
  • Electric stimulation devices that control arm and leg muscles for activities like standing, walking, and gripping
  • Robotic gait training that enables patients to walk again
