Spinal cord injury is one among the worst problem due to road traffic accident and car accidents are by far the most common cause of spinal cord issues , leading to 47% of all spinal cord injury cases. Damage to the spinal cord happens when parts of bone, disc material, or ligaments bruise or tear into the spinal cord tissue and destroy a portion of the nerve cells which help the brain communicate to the rest of the body.
International Spinal Cord Society (ISCoS) has decided to observe ‘Spinal Cord Injury Day’ on 5th September every year with the intention of increasing awareness among the general public. It is presumed that the awareness would facilitate an inclusive life for persons with disability and ensure greater chances of success of prevention programs.
Thus we observe this day every year by creating awareness with Spinal cord injury victims on road. The impact made by them are so powerful that each and everyone on vehicle never forgets whats they see and make sure of their safety on road while driving.
