Suffered an injury in the workplace?
Spinal injuries are quite common in slips or falls. When we think of spinal injuries often we think of a disease that has spread and damaged the spine and surrounding tissue but sadly many spinal injuries are simply from people falling or slipping over. The force of which they land on their back damages the spinal cord. When doctors use the term ‘Spinal Cord Injury’ they mean that that the injury to the spinal cord was caused by a trauma such as a fall and not by a disease.
The seriousness of a spinal cord injury depends on the way in which it occurred and where the cord and nerve roots are damaged. If you are lucky you will suffer an ‘incomplete spinal injury ‘meaning you still have some function and feeling but in the worst cases people can lose all feeling and functions known as a ‘complete injury’.
