Severe accidents can often result in severe injuries. One of the most devastating is a spinal injury. They can take a long time to recover and sometimes they don’t fully heal. Why do spinal injuries rarely heal? Let’s look at the facts about these types of injuries:
Understanding the Severity of Spinal Injuries
When someone suffers from a spinal injury, the spinal cord experiences trauma and the nerve cells are damaged. Those cells don’t regenerate, meaning that’s it’s highly unlikely someone will fully recover from a serious spinal injury.
It’s important to know that the spinal cord doesn’t need to be severed for damage to occur. The injury can still result in the loss of function.
