Spinal

bg

Sudden, trauma to the spinal cord that affects either the vertebrae (individual structural components of the spinal cord) or the cauda equina (nerve bundle at terminal end of the spine) results in Spinal Cord Injury.

The Spinal Cord is an accumulation of specialized nerve fibers that constitutes an integral part of the CNS (Central Nervous System) and runs down the length of our backs. It serves as the conduit between the brain and various body parts, hence injuries to the spinal cord results in temporary or lasting loss of functional abilities, reduced muscle strength and lack of sensation below the site of injury.

Emergency signs of Spinal Cord Injury
  • Excruciating pain in back, parts of the neck and head
  • Absence of sensation or tingling in body extremities (fingers or toes)
  • Bowel and bladder incontinence issues
  • Movement issues while walking
  • Loss of balance
  • Breathing problems post injury
  • Altered functioning of sexual organs, sensations to sexual stimuli, fertility issues
  • Abnormal positioning of back, neck
  • Coughing to eject lung secretions
  • Repeated, abnormal pattern of reflex actions resembling spasms
