Spinal Cord Injuries from Car Accidents

It is well known that factors stress and strain can make physical pain much worse. For instance, a person who has just been in a car accident will likely have a greater degree of headache pain than he or she will have, from the same kind of headache, when experienced under less severe circumstances. While bodily injury pain can be subjective and depend on a person’s temperament and mental resiliency, the limits of human endurance are not. Every person has a pain threshold which is basically be defined as the point at which one begins to feel physical pain. Nothing tests these limits more than spinal cord injuries. Spinal cord injuries can occur when a severe fall or car crash such as a rear-end accident, compresses or severs the spinal cord. For instance, a person who is seated in a vehicle, especially one whose head is unsupported, upon receiving an unexpected impact in the rear, is subjected to a tremendous hyperextension force which, as has been shown in engineering studies and slow-motion pictures produced under test  conditions, to be considerably more than the average person would expect. This is due to the way in which the top portion of the spine or Cervical Spine is located on the human body in contrast to that of the rest of the vertebral column.
