Spinal Cord Injuries Can Be Life-changing
Approximately 250,000 to 400,000 people in the United States have spinal cord injuries, according to the National Spinal Cord Injury Association. Each year, about 11,000 people sustain new spinal cord injuries – that’s thirty new injuries every day.
Auto accidents, sports accidents, falls, and workplace accidents are among the most common causes of spinal cord injury. Most victims are 30 years old or younger when they are injured and will need ongoing medical support and help with the tasks of daily life for decades.

A spinal cord injury can result in paralysis, including quadriplegia or paraplegia, depending on where the injury to the spinal cord occurred. Injuries in the area of the cervical vertebrae (in the neck) typically result in quadriplegia while injuries lower in the spinal column may result in paraplegia.
