Spinal Injuries and Paralysis

A serious road traffic accident can damage the spine and spinal column, which can affect loss of feeling and control in various parts of the body. Paralysis can be localised to a specific part of the body or can affect general areas of the body, such as the arm and leg on one side (paraplegia) or both legs and some of the lower body (paraplegia).

 

Types of paralysis

After an accident, a person with paralysis will often have some form of nerve damage as a result of an injury to the spinal cord.

The vertebrae of the spinal cord are grouped into three sections:

  • C1 to C7 are the cervical vertebrae in the neck.
  • T1 to T12 are the thoracic vertebrae in the torso and chest.
  • L1 to L5 are the lumbar vertebrae in the lower back.

The type of paralysis will depend on where injury to the spine occurred. Injuries higher up the spinal column will cause loss of movement to more parts of the body.
