Central cord syndrome treatment

The London Spine Unit specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of Central cord syndrome. Our Specialists are trained in the recognition of symptoms caused by Central cord syndrome. The best investigation for this condition is an MRI scan as this shows the structural damage that can be caused by Central cord syndrome.

If you have been diagnosed with Central cord syndrome then you should seek a specialist second opinion on the best treatment options as untreated Central cord syndrome can lead to more serious problems including nerve damage, persistent pain and immobility.

Our Location

We are based on the Prestigious Harley Street and our clinic is fully equipped to diagnose and treat Central cord syndrome

 

More details about Central cord syndrome

Central cord syndrome (CCS) is the most common form of cervical spinal cord injury. It is characterized by loss of motion and sensation in arms and hands. It usually results from trauma which causes damage to the neck, leading to major injury to the central corticospinal tract of the spinal cord[1]. The syndrome is more common in people over the age of 50 because osteoarthritis in the neck region causes weakening of the vertebrae. CCS most frequently occurs among older persons with cervical spondylosis[2], however, it also may occur in younger individuals.[3]

CCS is the most common incomplete spinal cord injury syndrome. It accounts for approximately 9% of traumatic SCIs.[4] After an incomplete injury, the brain still has the capacity to send and receive some signals below the site of injury. Sending and receiving of signals to and from parts of the body is reduced, not entirely blocked. CCS gives a greater motor loss in the upper limbs than in the lower limbs, with variable sensory loss.
