Around 282,000 people are living in the US with some kind of spinal cord injury. According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, the following is a breakdown of how these injuries happen:
The cost of injuries for just the FIRST year of treatment are as follows:
These costs do not include expenses related to family members having to miss work to be with you, traveling to treatment centers, costs to adjust the home to accommodate the injured person, and new vehicle costs to accommodate wheelchairs.
When someone suffers a spinal cord injury, they will likely lose income while they recover and possibly all future income if they are permanently disabled. These injuries don’t affect just the victims, but the whole family. The lifespan of someone who has suffered a spinal cord injury is significantly decreased, as they are more likely to develop other medical conditions during their lifetime due to an inability to exercise appropriately.
