Spinal cord injuries can be devastating. The spinal cord runs from the waist to the head. It carries messages to and from a person’s brain. So any injury to the spinal cord could cause paralysis/major mobility and other difficulties.
Brain injuries can result in life-changing and permanent issues. They can affect a person’s ability to manage their personal and financial affairs, their ability to work now and in the future and their enjoyment of their home and social life.
