Chronic Complications of Cervical Spine Injuries

Chronic Complications of Cervical Spine Injuries

I’m Ed Smith, a Stockton, personal injury lawyer. The spine is one of the most critical parts of the body. The vertebrae project nerves that power the motor and sensory functions of the body. If the cervical spine is injured, someone could wind up with complications that could last for the rest of their life. A severe spinal cord injury may occur because of a sudden impact or cut to the spine area. This type of injury often brings with it a permanent loss of sensation, strength, and function just beneath the site of the injury. Assistive and rehabilitative devices are utilized to enable many individuals with spinal cord trauma to lead independent, productive lives. Treatments typically include drugs to reduce the severity of symptoms as well as surgery to stabilize the spine.
