Everyone is prone to a spinal cord injury, though it is not something we think about often.
According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, there are a wide range of SCI causes.
Out of the approximately 17,000 new spinal cord injuries a year, 80 percent are male victims.
There are different levels of severity, and this is the breakdown:
The costs for the FIRST YEAR of medical expenses for these injuries ranges from $346,896 to over $1 million dollars. For each following year, the costs range from $42,256 to $185,111.
Those are just the medical costs. What is not included are the hidden costs that many people do not thing about.
These injuries significantly reduce life expectancy and lead to other medical conditions developing in the person who is injured.
Spinal cord injury victims see their lives completely changed. Many are never able to return to work or do the activities they love to do. They can develop severe depression. Family members who care for them also suffer from emotional distress and may need to seek psychological treatment.
These injuries do not just affect the person who suffers from them. They affect entire families.
