Treatment For


Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injury (SCI) refers to damage to the spinal cord that results in a loss of function, such as mobility or sensation. The severity of the injury can vary from temporary to permanent effects, impacting an individual’s quality of life significantly. The spinal cord does not have to be severed for a loss of functioning to occur; in most cases, the spinal cord is intact, but the damage to it results in impaired functioning.

Causes of Spinal Cord Injury include:

  • Alcohol and Substance Abuse: Impaired judgment and increased risk-taking behaviors associated with substance abuse can lead to accidents that result in SCI.
  • Workplace Accidents: Jobs that involve heavy lifting or operating machinery carry a higher risk of causing SCI due to accidents or falls.
  • Diving Accidents: Incorrect diving into shallow waters can cause head and neck trauma, leading to SCI.
  • Electric Shock: Electrical accidents can lead to severe muscle contractions and traumatic damage to the spinal cord.
  • Birth Injuries: Infants can suffer from SCI due to physical trauma during the birthing process, affecting their spinal cord development.

How does a spinal cord injury affect the body?

A spinal cord injury disrupts the communication pathway between the brain and the body, leading to loss of mobility and sensation below the injury site. This disruption can result in paralysis, loss of bladder and bowel control, changes in sexual function, and decreased ability to regulate blood pressure and body temperature. Rehabilitation and ongoing care are essential to manage these effects and improve the quality of life for individuals with SCI.

What steps can be taken to prevent spinal cord injuries?

Preventing spinal cord injuries involves adopting safety measures in daily activities and environments. This includes wearing seatbelts while driving, using protective gear during sports, ensuring homes and workplaces are free from fall hazards, and avoiding risky behaviors that could lead to violence. Education on safe practices and awareness of potential risks can significantly reduce the incidence of spinal cord injuries.
