The issue with these injuries is that the spinal cord relays messages from the brain to areas of the body below the area of the injury.

Spinal cord injuries can have various impacts on the body. When there is an injury at the T-12 level or below, one of the things that can occur is difficulty with the bowels. This is something that is manageable but it might not be pleasant to deal with.

Think about the full effects of your spinal cord injury

As we recently discussed, spinal cord injuries are costly injuries. For many people who suffer these injuries, thinking about the cost is enough to bring sheer terror to their world. When the accident wasn't your fault, these thoughts can be devastating. In this case, you might decide that you are going to take action to reduce the financial impact of the crash.

Stress and the impact of spinal cord injuries

Frustration is common after a spinal cord injury. Simply knowing that you can't do the things that you are accustomed to doing can be very difficult.

Failing to do so can have very serious consequences.
