Your spine is a sensitive array of nerves, cartilage, muscle, and bone that affects how your whole body operates. Any injury to these parts may potentially impact the entire rest of your body, especially if your spinal cord is damaged.
Spinal injuries vary widely in severity and duration, but they can potentially change the rest of your life. They may cause pain, loss of motion, and even full paralysis. This can cost you your job, your ability to walk or drive, and even make it harder for you to spend time with your family.
