Perhaps the most vulnerable area of the body besides the brain is the spinal cord. The spinal cord controls our movements, our reactions, what we feel and countless other functions that are vital to sustaining life. If your spinal cord is injured permanently, you unfortunately face a lifetime of struggle.
Although no definitive study has been done in relation to these injuries, several sources when compiled show that anywhere between 250,000 and 300,000 people in the United States live with permanent spinal cord damage. Even more disturbing is that most spinal cord injuries are suffered by those between the ages of 16 and 30, creating a long-term lifestyle change.
