Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injury

The spinal column is delicate and stretches from the base of the skull to the coccyx (tail bone). The 33 vertebrae that surround the spinal column protect the central nervous system. The location of the spinal cord injury may determine which signals or bodily functions are affected. A spinal cord injury closer to the brain can cut off more of the signals needed for the body to function. Breathing, speaking, moving, and more can all be affected in a matter of seconds.
