Long Beach Spinal Cord Injuries

The annual incidence of spinal cord injury is approximately 54 cases per 1 million people in the United States, according to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC). In other words, there are approximately 17,700 new spinal cord injury cases each year.

The United States Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) Long Beach Spinal Cord Injury and Disorders Center began operations in 1946 with a mission to serve Veterans from World Wars I and II, but today serves veterans of all branches and all eras including those returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. It now cares for more than 900 veterans in Southern California and the Las Vegas area.

Causes of Long Beach Spinal Cord Injuries

A person’s spinal cord could be irreparably damaged in a variety of scenarios. The most common causes of spinal cord injuries generally include, but are not limited to:

  • Pedestrian Accidents
  • Car Accidents
  • Truck Accidents
  • Public Transportation Accidents
  • Auto Defects
  • Bicycle Accidents
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Hit and Run Accidents

In most spinal cord injury cases, a victim will need to prove that another party was at fault for the accident that caused their injury. You can often help your case by trying to photograph the scene of your accident, as the pictures you take can be valuable forms of evidence.

Types of Long Beach Spinal Cord Injuries

The human vertebral column has 33 vertebrae. Most spinal cord injuries involve injuries to one of the three following regions:

  • Cervical Vertebrae (C1-C7) — High-cervical nerve (C1-C4) injuries can cause an impaired ability to speak, difficulty breathing or controlling bowel or bladder movements, and paralysis in the arms, hands, or legs. C5-C7 injuries also affect bowel or bladder movements and a person’s ability to control their arms and hands.
  • Thoracic Vertebrae (T1-T12) — Injuries to the thoracic vertebrae usually affect a person’s legs and trunk. Injuries to the vertebrae in the upper back (T1-T5) can require wheelchairs, but many people retain use of hands and arms and are able to walk again with braces if they suffer injuries to the vertebrae the middle of the back (T6-T12).
  • Lumbar Vertebrae (L1-L5) — Lumbar nerve injuries can cause loss of bowel and bladder control. A person’s hip and legs are usually affected, and some people may require wheelchairs while others can walk again with braces.

The spinal cord has two other regions, but injuries to those sections generally do not carry the same consequences as the vertebrae higher up in the back. Sacral vertebrae (S1-S5) injuries could also cause loss of bowel and bladder control, but coccyx or tailbone injuries are limited to pain without additional consequences.
