What Is Spinal Cord Injury?
Spinal cord injury (SCI) is damage to the spinal cord that causes a loss of functionality such as mobility or feeling. Spinal cord damage can be caused by trauma such as a car accident, a slip-and-fall or a gunshot. It can also be caused by diseases such as polio, multiple sclerosis, spina bifida, and Lou Gehrig’s disease (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis — ALS). Spinal cord injuries can also be the result of automobile and motorcycle accidents, falls down stairs, gymnastic injuries, diving accidents and trampoline accidents.
