Spinal cord injury Specialist

Spinal cord injury treatment

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

If you have been diagnosed with Spinal cord injury then you should seek a specialist second opinion on the best treatment options as untreated Spinal cord injury 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 Spinal cord injury

 

More details about Spinal cord injury

A spinal cord injury (SCI) is damage to the spinal cord that causes temporary or permanent changes in its function. Symptoms may include loss of muscle function, sensation, or autonomic function in the parts of the body served by the spinal cord below the level of the injury. Injury can occur at any level of the spinal cord and can be complete injury, with a total loss of sensation and muscle function, or incomplete, meaning some nervous signals are able to travel past the injured area of the cord. Depending on the location and severity of damage, the symptoms vary, from numbness to paralysis to incontinence. Long term outcomes also ranges widely, from full recovery to permanent tetraplegia (also called quadriplegia) or paraplegia. Complications can include muscle atrophy, pressure sores, infections, and breathing problems.

In the majority of cases the damage results from physical trauma such as car accidents, gunshots, falls, or sports injuries, but it can also result from nontraumatic causes such as infection, insufficient blood flow, and tumors. Just over half of injuries affect the cervical spine, while 15% occur in each of the thoracic spine, border between the thoracic and lumbar spine, and lumbar spine alone.[1] Diagnosis is typically based on symptoms and medical imaging.[1]
