Spinal Cord Injuries in Washington, D.C.

When an injury to the spinal cord fractures or dislocates the vertebrae causing bone fragments to bruise and tear the spinal cord, the result is often a devastating, life-changing event.

Spinal cord injuries are classified as either incomplete or complete. An incomplete spinal cord injury suggests the spinal cord has some function remaining and the victim of this type of injury usually retains some motor or sensory function. However, a complete spinal cord injury typically means there is a total loss of motor or sensory function below the level of the injury.

Automobile accidents are a major cause of spinal cord injuries along with falls and sports-related injuries. The physical, psychological and financial costs of a spinal cord injury are catastrophic with the cost of continuing medical care and treatment totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars annually.
