What is Spinal Cord Injury? The Levels of Spinal Cord Injury Explained.

What is spinal cord injury?

Quite often here at Spinal Injuries Ireland we are asked: “what is spinal cord injury?”

Many people assume it is just back pain or a slipped disc however, an injury to the spinal cord is life changing. One of our Community Team, Deirdre Griffin has developed this short, informative video (below) to explain the impact of a complete and incomplete spinal cord injury.

In Spinal Injuries Ireland we work with people who have sustained an injury and their families to help them make the difficult journey back to their community following medical intervention and rehabilitation. Unemployment is a huge issue with 76% of people not returning to the workforce post injury. By understanding the injury more, we hope people may be more inclusive in the workplace and in society in general.

Check out Deirdre’s YouTube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HG68kUXGJoY and give us a Thumbs Up on YouTube to let us know if you like the video and found it helpful!

Thanks so much for your support!
