Spinal cord injuries are among some of the most severe. This is particularly true for cervical spinal cord injuries. Affecting vertebrae C1 to C7, cervical spinal cord injuries are rare, but extremely serious. In the case of C1 and C2 vertebrae injuries, fatalities often occur. If a patient does survive a cervical spinal cord injury, full or partial paralysis and a lifetime dependency on personal care is a common outcome. Any other spinal injury can also have dramatic repercussions for the long-term health of the patient, and they can expect a lengthy rehabilitation process if they are to achieve the best possible outcome.
