Spinal Cord Injury Claims Pursued by Mullins McLeod
Spinal cord injury (SCI) can occur when the cells in the spinal cord are damaged or the nerve tracts that relay signals are severed. The following are the various forms of spinal cord injury that one can suffer:
- Bruising of the spinal cord
- Compression (pressure on the spinal cord)
- Laceration or tearing of the nerve fibers
- Central cord syndrome damage to corticospinal tracts of the cervical region
The consequences of SCI can be extremely severe, and can include the following:
- Loss of sensation
- Loss of reflex function below the point of injury
- Pain and sensitivity to stimuli
- Sexual dysfunction
- Muscle spasms
The loss of reflex can affect one's ability to breathe naturally or control the bowels and bladder. Other health issues that can also result from spinal cord injuries are bed sores, lung infections and bladder infections.
