Acute spinal cord injury (SCI) is a sudden and traumatic injury to the spinal cord that can have a severe impact on a person’s ability to move, feel, and function.
The spinal cord is a vital part of the nervous system that carries signals between the brain and the rest of the body.
When the spinal cord is damaged, it can disrupt these signals, leading to a range of symptoms and complications.
Symptoms of acute spinal cord injury can vary depending on the location and severity of the injury.
The treatment of acute spinal cord injury involves stabilizing the patient’s condition, preventing further damage, and promoting recovery.
Some treatment options include surgery, medications, and rehabilitation therapy. The goal is to manage symptoms, prevent complications, and help the patient recover completely.
