SCI is a devastating neurological illness that has a significant socioeconomic impact on afflicted people and the health-care system. A SCI patient’s lifetime cost is currently projected to be $2.35 million. Each year, 12,500 new cases of SCI are reported in North America, according to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center. SCI is caused by traumatic events such as traffic accidents, violence, sports, or falls in more than 90% of instances. SCI occurs more frequently in adults than in children, with a male-to-female ratio of 2:1. Men are most harmed in their early and late adulthood (3rd and 8th decades of life), whilst women are more vulnerable throughout youth (15–19 years).
