Due to the command the central nervous system has over a person's body, it is easy to see how an injury to the brain or the spinal cord could complicate a person's life temporarily or in some tragic cases, permanently.
For most people, brain injuries occur rather suddenly. In fact, the majority of these serious injuries result from unexpected accidents, blunt force and/or sudden trauma. Usually, brain injuries occur within a matter of seconds. This means that in a blink of an eye, brain injury sufferers' lives can unpredictably change for the worse as brain injuries are known for causing a vast array of complicated medical symptoms.

Spinal Cord Injuries
Very few injuries are as serious as brain injuries, save for spinal cord injuries. The spinal cord houses countless nerves which are responsible for peoples' coordination and bodily movements. Anytime the spinal cord is injured, these nerves may incur damage and limit a person's ability to move or even breathe. Additionally, spinal cord injuries may result in loss of digestive function, loss of reproductive function and paralysis.
