Spinal cord injury symptoms vary from person to person. These injuries may result in physical impairment, paralysis, and loss of bodily functions. Seeking immediate medical treatment for spinal cord injuries is critical when it comes to improving your chances of recovery. Spinal cord medical treatment costs are very high, and those who suffer spinal cord injuries frequently lose the ability to work, at least temporarily.
