Accordingly to the CDC, motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for people age 5-34. Someone dies in a car crash in the United States every 12 minutes. Someone is injured in a car crash in the United States every 10 seconds. The cost is an estimated $99 billion per year.
The most common cause of spinal cord dysfunction is trauma, which can occur in motor vehicle accidents.
Spinal cord injuries involve damage to the nerves within the bony protection of the spinal canal that can commonly lead to paralysis. The spinal cord does not necessarily have to be severed in order for a loss of function to occur. The spinal cord can be bruised or stretched, and an injured spinal cord loses the ability to send and receive messages from the brain to the body's system that coordinates body movement and sensation.
