The care of spinal cord dysfunction has advanced significantly over the past two decades. Management and treatment of neurologic and non-neurologic complications of chronic myelopathies ensure that each patient will be able to maximize their functional independence and quality of life.
The spinal cord is divided into four areas, any of which can be affected by spinal cord disorders. These areas include:
Lumbar (upper back region)
Thoracic (lower back region)
Symptoms of spinal cord disorder
Weakness or paralysis of limbs
Loss of sensation
Changes in reflexes
Loss of urinary or bowel control
Uncontrolled muscle spasms
Spinal cord disorders can originate from either outside or inside the spinal cord. Damage from the outside of the cord is caused by compression of the spinal cord or injury. The spinal cord may be compressed due to a bone fracture, spinal degeneration, or abnormalities, such as a hematoma, tumor or herniated disk.
Damage from inside the spinal cord can be caused by a number of disorders, such as:
Blockage of blood supply
Treating spinal cord disorders
Treatment for spinal cord disorders depends on the location and severity of the condition. For some, the causes may be irreversible, but treatment at the direction of your health care team will help prevent further complications.
Treatment for spinal cord disorders may include:
Physical or occupational therapy
Surgery when necessary
The use of medications to help control issues such as:
Bowel and bladder dysfunctions
Other health issues
