Frequently Asked Spinal Cord Injury Questions

What are the Types of Spinal Cord Injuries?

There are two main types of spinal cord injuries, complete and incomplete. If your injury is complete, the nerves have been rendered ineffective and are no longer able to send any signals below where your injury happened. This is the type of spinal cord injury that leads to paralysis.

Incomplete spinal cord injuries, while still extremely damaging, still allow you to be able to move and sense things beneath the location of the injury.

There are treatments and rehabilitation methods that can allow you to continue to lead an independent life, and many states offer support groups in multiple locations. However, there is still no way to completely repair your spinal cord, making it so you would most likely spend much of your life dealing with the weight and effects of this injury.

According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC), there are about 17,000 new spinal cord injury incidents every year. That amounts to 54 cases per million. In 2016, the approximate number of people alive in the United States who have damage to their spinal cord is 282,000.

Who Are the Groups at Risk?

There are also certain groups that are more likely to experience injury to their spinal cord. The NSCISC reported that, while in the 1970s, 29 was the most common age to damage your spinal cord, that age has now risen to 42.

Males are at a larger risk of having their spinal cords injured. Females make up only about 20% of the serious spinal cord injuries in the United States.

Older people, often age 65 and older, can be more likely to damage their spinal cord. Falling becomes more likely as you age and that, combined with more delicate bones, leads many elderly people to develop serious injuries from falling, such as injuring their spinal cord.

However, risky and unruly behavior in younger generations can also cause spinal cord injuries. Motor vehicle accidents are the most common way that people under the age of 65 damage their spinal cords.

How Much Do Spinal Cord Injuries Usually Cost?

The medical expenses for spinal cord injuries can be extensive. Depending on the intensity of the damage, you can be forced to spend anywhere between $350,000 and $1.1 million in the first year after your accident. In the years following, while the expenses drop, they remain substantial. You may have to spend between $40,000 and $185,000 every year. Depending on the age that you were injured, it is estimated that you will have spent at least $1 million throughout your life dealing with this debilitating injury.
