Spinal Cord Injury

Show: (February 26, 2018)

spinal-cord-injuryA spinal cord injury (SCI) is the occurrence of an acute traumatic damage to the spinal cord or nerves roots within the spinal column, including the cauda equina, that results in temporary or permanent loss of motor function, sensory function, and autonomic functions. 

Higher levels of injuries typically result in a greater loss of function when compared to injuries at lower levels of the spinal cord. The Spain Rehabilitation Center is nationally recognized as one of the Southeast's foremost providers of comprehensive rehabilitation care for Spinal Cord Injuries and Traumatic Brain Injuries, and The Spinal Cord Injury Center is one of 12 Model Systems in the country.

In this segment Amie McLain, MD, discusses spinal cord injury, treatment options available at UAB Medicine and when to refer to a specialist.
