Spinal Cord Injuries


Spinal cord injuries can be life-altering and have a significant impact on an individual's physical, emotional, and financial well-being. It's crucial to understand the various causes and types of spinal cord injuries and the available treatment options to promote recovery and improve quality of life.

What is a Spinal Cord Injury?

A spinal cord injury occurs when there is damage to the spinal cord, resulting in a loss of sensation, movement, or both below the injury site. Spinal cord injuries can be either complete or incomplete, meaning that the individual may still have some sensory or motor function below the level of injury.

Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries:

Trauma (e.g., car accidents, falls)
Diseases (e.g., spinal cord tumors, spinal cord infection)
Degenerative conditions (e.g., osteoporosis, arthritis)
Congenital conditions (e.g., spina bifida)

Types of Spinal Cord Injuries:

Cervical spinal cord injuries
Thoracic spinal cord injuries
Lumbar spinal cord injuries

Treatment of Spinal Cord Injuries:

The Importance of Early and Appropriate Treatment for Spinal Cord Injuries. Early and appropriate treatment is critical for the best possible outcome for individuals with spinal cord injuries. Treatment may include:
