In many cases, a spinal injury can prove devastating to one’s health and mobility. Running from the brain to the lower back, the spinal column is situated houses and protects the spinal cord, a long, thin, tubular bundle of nervous tissue and support cells that extends from the brain. When the brain sends messages to different regions of the body, those are transmitted largely through the spinal cord. That means that when one suffers from a spinal injury, messages from the brain are sometimes unable to be sent, leading to paraplegia, quadriplegia or even full body paralysis in some cases.
