Spinal cord injuries are especially dangerous. The effects may be immediate and devastating, or their severity may not be fully revealed until sometime after the accident.

Recognize The Symptoms Of A Serious Spinal Cord Injury

- Loss of function of your arms or hands
- Difficulty walking, including loss of balance
- Numbness or loss of feeling in any of your limbs
- Strong spasms
- Bowel or bladder difficulties
- Pelvic pain or discomfort involving the nervous system
