Spinal Cord Injuries – Paraplegia and Quadriplegia
Spinal cord injuries cause devastating physical and emotional injuries. Physically, spinal cord injuries result in permanent problems such as loss of movement, loss of strength, loss of sensation, loss of bowel and bladder control, pain, spasms, and more. Consequently, individuals with spinal cord injuries must learn to navigate their everyday lives with the assistance of others and an array of medical equipment such as wheelchairs, medications, computer adaptions, electronic aids, etc. Not surprisingly, coping with all these changes in lifestyle can create a whole gamut of emotions including depression, anxiety and anger.
As if all of this is not enough, individuals with spinal cord injuries are also at risk for secondary complications including urological and gastrointestinal issues, respiratory disease such as pneumonia, spasticity issues, tendon problems, deep vein thrombosis, pressure sores and more. In addition, major renovations are often required to make it possible for them to stay in their own homes, and a wheelchair-accessible van is often necessary to make basic transportation possible.
