There are many things that can cause an alteration in our lives so significantly with little or no warning. Two of those things are a Brain or Spinal Cord Injury.

It has been estimated that five (5) million or more people in the United States live with the lasting effects of an Injury to the Brain, and it is estimated that another 1.7 million people will endure a new Brain Injury every year. A Brain Injury, a/k/a brain injury that is acquired, is the result of any brain damage that has an affect on a person emotionally, behaviorally, and/or physically. Injuries to the brain can occur at as early as birth from birth trauma or later in life from other trauma such as a motor vehicle accident or other blow to the head from a fall or a bullet, or even illnesses, and are referred to as either non-traumatic or traumatic and which designation depends on which case specifically cause the damage to the brain.
Spinal Cord injuries, unlike Brain Injuries that can be fatal, can occur when there has been damage and/or trauma to the spinal code. Think of the Spinal Code as a pathway of nerves that leaves the brain and travels down your spine in between our vertebrae. Since smaller spinal cord nerves control sensory and motor functions, may of these injuries may result in sensory or mobility loss in the areas that are just below the damaged area.
