What Causes Spinal Cord Injuries in Georgia?

Spinal cord injuries result from damage to the vertebrae, ligaments or disks of the spinal column or to the spinal cord itself.  The most common spinal cord injury in Georgia and throughout the U.S. is a broken neck or back, causing damage to the bones of the spine that surround the spinal cord.  This often results in damage to the nerves of the spinal cord inside the spinal column.

Traumatic spinal cord injures occur when individuals experience a sudden, traumatic blow to their spine that fractures, crushes, or compresses one or more of their vertebrae.  Additional damage can occur days and weeks later because of bleeding, swelling, inflammation, and fluid accumulation in and around the spinal cord.
