What are the symptoms of a spinal cord injury?

A spinal cord injury can be a very serious medical condition that may result in serious complications, and even death, if not properly treated. Reno residents who believe that they may have suffered spinal cord injuries as a result of the negligence of others are strongly encouraged to contact medical professionals to have their health conditions assessed. The contents of this post are offered only as information and should not be used as medical or legal advice.

When the victim of an accident or incident suffers a spinal cord injury, there are two ways that the injury may be classified: complete or incomplete. While a complete spinal cord injury is indicated by the absence of feeling or sensation in the victim's body below the site of the injury, the victim of an incomplete spinal cord injury may have some feeling in his or her body below the affected part of the spine.

There are certain symptoms people may feel or not feel if they have suffered damage to their spinal cord. They may experience an inability to move parts of their bodies and they may lose the ability to feel sensations such as temperature and pressure. Their muscles may seize up or spasm, and depending upon the site of their injuries, they may have difficulty breathing and clearing out their lungs.

Any time a person is involved in an accident it is a good idea for him or her to be checked out by a doctor. If an individual has suffered a spinal cord injury, the early treatment of that damage can be critical to any recovery. Once medical needs are addressed, it is not unreasonable for spinal cord injury victims to seek the assistance of legal professionals to pursue compensation for their accident-related losses and medical costs.
