The spinal cord runs from the brain down the back and consists of a bundle of nerves protected by vertebrae. Different parts of the spinal cord control the different functions of the body; and control muscles and sense of touch, etc.
Spinal cord injuries can be extremely serious, painful and even result in paralysis and varying degrees of incapacity. The spinal column consists of four areas, the Cervical (neck area), the Thoracic (chest area), the Lumbar (back area) and the Sacral (low back area). Severe damage to the Cervical or Thoracic regions can result in paralysis. Insult to the Lumbar or Sacral regions may cause loss of bowel/bladder control, pain and/or numbness.
