SPINAL CORD PAIN?
The spinal cord consists of bundled nerves that carry messages between your body and brain. The vertebrae serves as a cage, surrounding and protecting the spinal cord. Direct trauma to the nerves or indirect trauma to the bones, soft tissues, and vessels around the spinal cord result in a spinal cord injury.
Because the spinal cord passes through the neck and back, any injury to the spinal cord has the potential to have devastating effects. Living with a spinal cord injury can be incredibly painful and debilitating. However, you don’t have to suffer from spinal cord pain.

Spinal Injury Symptoms from Traumatic or Non-Traumatic Injuries
A variety of factors cause spinal cord injuries, including car accidents, falls, other impacts, or sports, such as gymnastics or diving. Non-traumatic injuries can also happen from cancer, inflammation, or other diseases, such as Multiple sclerosis or arthritis.
Regardless of how an injury occurred, bruised or torn spinal cords are extremely painful, as they can affect physical and mental aspects of the body. In general, the higher up on the spine the injury occurs, the more damage the person will experience. Depending on the location of the injury in the vertebrae, symptoms will vary. Spinal injuries can cause the following symptoms:
- Loss of sensation
- Intense stinging or tingling sensations
- Restricted range of movement
- Partial or complete paralysis
- Weakened diaphragm/respiratory problems
- Exaggerated reflex actions or spasms
- Changes in sexual health
- Spastic muscles
- Pressure sores
- Blood clots
- Bladder problems
- A range of intense emotions when coping
