Spinal cord injuries can occur as a result of being involved in a motor vehicle accident or sporting injury.
Causes are typically related to the result of trauma on the spinal cord. Individuals who have a long-standing cervical spondylosis condition may develop a spinal cord injury when there is a hyperextension injury in which the spinal cord is pinched or when there is a compression. At times, central cord syndrome can result in a fracture dislocation and compression fracture, especially if the spinal cord is congenitally narrow.
A diagnosis of a spinal cord injury may follow from an x-ray, CT scan, or MRI scan. Treatments for spinal cord injuries can be extensive and expensive.
