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. Jay Rosenfeld answered:

Are there any ways to recover from spinal cord injuries?

Yes

Paralysis
If you mean a complete cure for paralysis, we do not have that yet. However, there can be a great deal of natural recovery depending on the extent of the damage. Also, rehabilitation programs for spinal cord injury can help a great deal in terms of helping the person with spinal cord injury become as independent as possible for their injury.

If so, statistics say 40 per million people per year have traumatic spinal cord injury. If you actually meant why, the answers are extremely varied and complex. Per statistics, MVAs account for 47%, falls for 23%, violence for for 14%, sports for 9% and other for 7%.

How often is paralysis certain after spinal cord injuries?

Variable

Open-uri20120729-13669-1czopra
kind of the luck of the draw. sometimes the cord can be bruised with near complete recovery. there are multiple factors: level of the injury, violence of the injury, etc. Impossible to predict in advance.
