Partial vs. Complete Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries are characterized as either partial (incomplete) or
complete depending on the resulting ability of the spinal cord to convey
messages to the brain. People that suffer complete spinal cord injuries
have either total or near-total loss of motor function and sensation below
the area of the injury, while people with partial spinal cord injuries
retain some sensation and possibly motor function below the injury. Treatment
after a spinal cord injury can be a long and difficult process that often
includes surgery, rehabilitation, and a course of medications.
Spinal Cord Injury Statistics and Facts
There are approximately 12,000 new spinal cord injury cases each year.
It is currently estimated that approximately 300,000 people are living
with a spinal cord injury. The most common cause of these spinal cord
injuries since 2005 is motor vehicle accidents, with falls a distant second.
Depending on the severity of the injury, the estimated lifetime care cost
for a 25-year-old who has suffered a spinal cord injury ranges anywhere
from $681,000 to over $3 million dollars. These estimates do not consider
the lost wages and productivity of the injured person, nor do they account
for their pain and suffering.
