Spinal-Injury.net :  Spinal Cord Injury & Paralysis Website


Welcome to Spinal Cord Injury Network

My name is Andy and my cycling accident and Spinal Cord Injury in 1994 radically changed my life. Breaking my neck took a second to do but my resulting disability (spinal cord injury) will last my lifetime. Hopefully this website will assist others in understanding the nature of spinal cord injury (SCI).

If you, a family member or a friend have recently suffered a Spinal Cord Injury  then although a 'normal' life may seem impossible now, let me assure you with time and knowledge things can and will get better.   Spinal Cord Injury take many forms.  There is tetraplegia (called quadriplegia or quadraplegia in USA), paraplegia and there are complete or incomplete lesions too.  The most severe complete Spinal Cord Injury  (high neck) will result in complete body paralysis and require a ventilator to breathe.  The most incomplete Spinal Cord Injury  may be able to walk virtually normally again but still suffer impaired continence bodily functions as a result of the cord lesion.

Every Spinal Cord Injury  and the resulting disability is unique as are the people who have suffered them.  If you are SCI yourself, a relative, friend, health professional or just someone seeking further information about life with a spinal cord injury you are ALL welcome here at the Spinal Injury Network. There's a lot of useful information about spinal cord injury on this site and an active community on the Message Boards too.
