If you have received injures to your neck or back, or have ever known anyone who has received serious injuries to their neck or back, you are familiar with these often devastating and life-changing types of injuries. These injuries not only impact the person injured, but other family members as well.
It is estimated that there are approximately 11,000 individuals affected by neck and back injuries each year across the U. S., and approximately 250,000 are living with total or partial paralysis resulting from some type of neck or back injury caused by an accident.
Neck and back injuries can leave an individual with intense pain. At best, the injured are dependent upon high-powered pain medication in order to function, and at its worst, without the ability of full range of motion of their neck and back, leaving them unable to even turn their heads.
Spinal cord injuries often result in partial or total paralysis leaving the individual dependent upon other family members, and unable to work, or function in any normal physical capacity.
