5 Signs of a Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal Cord Injuries Are Serious

Unfortunately, spinal injuries are common after serious falls or accidents. Sometimes the symptoms are overt and obvious, but other times they can be more subtle. Having a medical professional assess and address a spinal injury in a timely fashion is paramount to recovery.

Here are 5 signs that you may have spinal cord injury:

  1. Loss of voluntary muscle movement in your chest, arms, or legs
  2. Feeling the spreading of numbness or tingling in your extremities
  3. Experiencing weakness or inability to walk
  4. Having trouble breathing
  5. Experiencing a loss of bladder or bowel control
