Written by BillionAbles

Disability is conceptualized as being a multidimensional experience for the person involved. There may be effects on organs or body parts and there may be effects on a person’s participation in areas of life. The classification  recognizes the role of physical and social environmental factors in affecting disability outcomes. Types of disabilities include various physical and mental impairments that can hamper or reduce a person’s ability to carry out his day to day activities. ‘Disability’ can be broken down into a number of broad sub-categories out of which the most new appearing is spinal cord disability.

Spinal cord injury (SCI) can sometimes lead to lifelong disabilities. This kind of injury mostly occurs due to severe accidents. The injury can be either complete or incomplete. In an incomplete injury, the messages conveyed by the spinal cord are not completely lost. Whereas a complete injury results in a total disfunctioning of the sensory organs. In some cases spinal cord disability can be a birth defect. A spinal cord injury (SCI) is damage to the spinal cord that causes changes in its function, either temporary or permanent. These changes translate into loss of muscle function, sensation or autonomic function in parts of the body served by the spinal cord. Depending on the location and severity of damage along the spinal cord, the symptoms can vary widely, from pain or numbness to paralysis to incontinence(lack of control). In the majority of cases the damage results from physical trauma such as car accidents, gunshots, falls, or sports injuries, but it can also result from non-traumatic causes such as infection, insufficient blood flow, and tumors. Efforts to prevent SCI include individual measures such as using safety equipment, societal measures such as safety regulations in sports and traffic, and improvements to equipment.

As per WHO survey 4 million of the population has been affected by spinal cord injury which is a danger figure and if not seen with measures then may increase to unbearable amount. All we got to do is just be safe injurious vulnerability and spread awareness as much as possible which can simplify their lives or else prevent this to be occurred to anyone else .

Because sharing happiness brings more joy and  prosperity Hence make this place better place to not only live but to survive all odd and eves of life too
