SPINAL CORD INJURY DIAGNOSES
To diagnose a spinal cord injury, a doctor may call for a series of tests to be done. These tests can include x-rays to determine if there are issues with the vertebra alignment or position. MRI’s are also used to see if there are any issues like blood clots or herniated discs that could be causing pressure and damage to the spinal cord.
TREATMENT OF A SPINAL CORD INJURY
Unfortunately, there is no way currently to reverse the damage done to the spinal cord. Doctors are still working on understanding the complex nature of the spinal cord and how to repair it. When you suffer an injury to the spinal cord, it is very likely that you have suffered permanent damage. Doctors may prescribe medication and physical therapy to help manage symptoms.
If you have had a spinal cord injury leading to paralysis, you will need extensive medical treatment. You will need to relearn many of your day-to-day activities. You may need to modify your motor vehicle, home and workplace. Spinal cord injury sufferers experience a number of health problems such as chronic pain and a decreased resistance to respiratory complications. Other complications include problems with the bladder and bowels, the inability to regulate blood pressure, and a reduced ability to regulate body temperature. Spinal cord injury victims may experience a shorter lifespan and need a lifetime of specialized medical care.
