Brain injuries are one type of catastrophic injury. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) affects one or more areas of your brain. It can lead to impaired memory and problems with vision, emotions, communication, and physical movement. Even seemingly minor brain injuries can create long-term problems.
Spinal Cord Injury
A spinal cord injury is caused by damage to your spinal cord that often results in a loss of function. Your spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that travels from your brain, inside your vertebrae, down your neck and back. It carries sensory impulses to your brain and commands from the brain that control your movements.
Your vertebrae cover and protect your spinal cord, but physical trauma to your neck, back or skull can injure the spinal cord or its ability ot function properly. The result is a loss of feeling and/or mobility. The damage can be temporary, but in an unfortunate number of cases, it is permanent.
The leading causes of spinal cord injury are:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Slip and fall injuries
- Sports injuries
A burn injury can be catastrophic. Often, burn injuries require hospitalization and long term treatment. Physical disfigurement resulting from burn injuries can also lead to severe emotional damage, requiring counseling or other mental health services to help cope.
