A spinal cord injury (SCI) is damage to the spinal cord that causes temporary or permanent changes in its function. India gets lot of such patients especially from countries like Nigeria and Iraq. 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. The injury to the spinal cord can cause partial or complete paralysis of the body. The patient can lose bowel control and be completely bed ridden due to a spinal cord injury. Being bedridden for a long period of time can have numerous side effects. These may include muscle atrophy, bed sores, infections and breathing problems. Surgery and phyiotherapy are the mainstay of the treatment of any kind of spinal cord injury.
Surgery is advised by the neurosurgeons for such cases with severe injury to spinal cord. The main reason for spinal cord injury surgery is to relieve excess pressure on the cord so that the spine can be stabalized and the vertebrae can be put in proper place. It has been observed that if the surgery is not done immediately then the condition of the patient can worsen in some cases. If there is any compression on the cord due to a fractured bone or blood clots then also surgery should be performed without much delay. However if the patient has many other injuries and the general condition is not good then we do not rush for the surgery and a more conservative approach like bed rest, cervical collars, motion restriction devices are used. Traction may be used to reduce the pressure on the spinal cord.
