The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs down the middle of the back which carry signals back and forth between the body and brain. It is protected by vertebrae, which are the bone disks that make up the spine.

An accident that damages the vertebrae or other parts of the spine, can injure the spinal cord. Other spinal cord problems include

  • Tumors
