Understanding Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries usually occur as the result of trauma to the spine. When the vertebrae are forced or broken out of place by an impact, the fracture or dislocation can sever, pinch or put pressure on the spinal cord and surrounding nerves. Spinal cord trauma may also occur as a result of a spinal cord tumor or other disease that puts pressure on and interferes with the spinal cord. If nerve damage is at stake, it is crucial to get a second opinion from a specialist like a neurosurgeon.

This can result in varying degrees of paralysis, making spinal cord injuries among the most serious and life-changing. While surgery to address spinal trauma is frequently done on an emergency basis, advances in the medical field are constantly pushing the boundaries of spinal trauma therapies. The spine specialists at Hunt Spine are experts in providing second opinions for patients seeking other treatment options.
