Spinal Cord Injury

Trauma, disease and degeneration in the spinal cord lead to spinal cord injury. The injury ranges from foramen magnum to cauda equina in the spinal cord. Symptoms are exhibited based on the degree of injury the spine has. Symptoms include partial to complete loss of motor control of arms, legs and even whole body and in severe cases leads to damage to systems that control bowel and bladder, breathing, heart rate, blood pressure leading to fatal situations. Spinal injury leads to other disorders such as deep vein thrombosis, urinary tract infections, muscle spasms, osteoporosis, pressure ulcers, chronic pain, and respiratory complications. Rapid evaluation and treatment, extensive care along with spinal cord injury rehabilitation programs can help recover from spinal cord injury.
