Spinal Cord Injuries Archives

Spinal cord research in spotlight at Purdue University

A spinal cord injury is a complex and serious ailment. Often testing - and sometimes exceeding - the bounds of medical knowledge and known treatments. The established personal injury firm of Tabor Law in Indianapolis says, "Each and every spinal cord injury requires a great deal of medical attention."

Spinal cord injuries often require expensive, lifelong care

A spinal cord injury is defined as damage to any part of the spinal cord that results either from diseases like cancer or from trauma caused in accidents such as car crashes. While spinal cord injuries vary depending on the severity of the accident, they come with a variety of unpleasant symptoms. These injuries are typically permanent, and affect the injured and their families for the rest of their lives.

Reviewing the potential for recovery from a spinal cord injury

The assumption that many may have is that severe physical impairments and/or paralysis is sure to follow, yet that is not always true. Many of the 17,000 people that the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center reports suffer spinal cord injuries each year in America may be able to recover to a certain degree.

New study: More oxygen can improve outcome in spinal cord injury

It resumes rapidly, however, and most doctors have assumed that blood flow then returns to near normal levels. A new study published in the May issue of Nature Medicine has demonstrated just the opposite -- spinal cord injuries lead to chronically poor blood flow and a lack of oxygen to the spinal cord's neuronal network. However, research showed that blocking a specific enzyme, and in turn pushing oxygen through the spinal cord improves the blood flow.
