Spinal cord injury without radiographic abnormality treatment

The London Spine Unit specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of Spinal cord injury without radiographic abnormality. Our Specialists are trained in the recognition of symptoms caused by Spinal cord injury without radiographic abnormality. The best investigation for this condition is an MRI scan as this shows the structural damage that can be caused by Spinal cord injury without radiographic abnormality.

If you have been diagnosed with Spinal cord injury without radiographic abnormality then you should seek a specialist second opinion on the best treatment options as untreated Spinal cord injury without radiographic abnormality can lead to more serious problems including nerve damage, persistent pain and immobility.

More details about Spinal cord injury without radiographic abnormality

Spinal cord injury without radiographic abnormality (SCIWORA) is symptoms of a spinal cord injury (SCI) with no evidence of injury to the spinal column on X-rays or CT scan.[3][4] Symptoms may include numbness, weakness, abnormal reflexes, or loss of bladder or bowel control.[1] Neck or back pain is also common.[2] Symptoms may be brief or persistent.[2] Some do not develop symptoms until a few days after the injury.[2]

Causes may include motor vehicle collisions, falls, sports injuries, and non accidental trauma.[2][1] A number of underlying mechanisms are proposed including spinal cord contusion, injury to the blood supply to the spinal cord, and excessive stretching of the cord.[2]Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is recommended to determine if further problems are present.[1]
