Paraplegia is a type of paralysis that, as we mentioned above, affects the victim’s lower body. Generally, because this injury results in paralysis of the legs and lower extremities, the spinal injury generally occurs in the lower parts of the spine (below the first thoracic spinal nerve). As such, victims may experience loss of sensory and motor function in the legs, urinary and fecal incontinence, impotence, and loss of pelvic function.
Some of the most common causes of traumatic spinal injury that leads to paraplegia include:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Sporting and recreation accidents
