often has a hard time communicating with brain impulses that control body
And here’s something, too, of course: When the spinal cord is badly
injured (as it frequently is in a spine-related injury frequently following
high-impact accidents), extremely serious outcomes can result.
In some cases, those include partial or even total paralysis.

story about a former college football player who was paralyzed in a game back in 2010. Eric LeGrand is now 27.

recently reached the impressive milestone of raising $1 million through
his Team LeGrand charity. All the money is targeted for spinal cord injury
research efforts made through the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.
