Damage to a person’s spinal cord can cause catastrophic, life-changing injuries. Motor vehicle accidents are a significant cause of spinal cord injury.
The most serious spinal cord injuries result in paralysis and loss of function, with paraplegia and quadriplegia being the most well known. Paraplegia often presents itself as a condition in which a person has lost the use of his or her legs or cannot move below the waist. Quadriplegia – with "quad" meaning four – refers to the loss of use of all four of a person’s limbs, as with the spinal cord injury of actor Christopher Reeve.
