Is sciatica a spinal cord injury?

No

Spinal_cord_injury
Sciatica is a pain symptom of a pinched nerve in the spine. Spinal Cord Injury is an actual/potential damage to the spinal cord resulting in a sensory or motor deficit. The two are very different. Speak with your doctor if you are concerned about either.

Can you repair T5 spinal cord injury?

Depends

Open-uri20120911-663-f047uc
Spinal cord injury is very complex and the ability to "fix" the problem depends on many things including how badly the nerves have been injured, the age of the patient, the mechanism of injury, etc. Unfortunately, the overall healing potential of the spinal cord is quite poor and many injuries result in permanent problems.

Bowel management for spinal cord injury?

What type of injury?

Open-uri20140226-25244-eknk1r
Upper motor neuron, or lower motor neuron injury will start to guide the management. Then there are too many variables that will need to be considered. A SCI bowel routine is best developed with a specialist in the field. See an SCI doc or nurse they can help. If unable consider this, The Paralyzed veterans of America have developed a consumers guide to SCI bowel care. Download for free at PVA web

Dr. Scott Bolhack answered:

Is sciatica a type of spinal cord injury?

Sciatica

Sciatica
The sciatic nerves arise from the branches of L4, L5, S1, S2, and S3. When these branches of these nerves come together they form the sciatic nerve. Because the sciatic nerve arises from each of these five nerves, often any one of these nerves can present also with the symptoms of sciatica. This nerve is considered a peripheral nerve, not a spinal cord nerve.

Dr. William Newton answered:

What are the tests for spinal cord injuries?

ASIA Exam

Spinal_cord_injury
Spinal cord injuries are graded using a scale called the ASIA score. This looks at strength, sensation and function of the bowel and bladder. MRI imaging is the best to try to localize a pathologic level of a spinal cord injury. SEP is another type of test than can help find injuries as well.

Dr. Robert Kent answered:

Can you tell me what a spinal cord injury is?

Spinal cord injury

Injuries
is an injury to the actual cord of portions of neurons that extend from the base of your brain down the spinal canal and send the nerves to the rest of your body from the brain. The actual injury can be numerous mechanisms, from anything from trauma to infection to infarct, severing communication of some degree from your brain to the levels below the injury.
