Possible Recovery After Spinal Cord Injury?
Hello Indha, Thank you for the question.
Spinal cord injury (spinal cord injury) is one of the consequences that can occur due to motor vehicle accidents. The spine has a channel where the nerves are located. If a collision occurs like an accident, then the spinal cord can be damaged and disrupted function. The spinal cord functions to regulate several bodily functions such as moving the limbs and feeling sensations in the body. The affected limb also depends on how high the injury is to the spine. Symptoms that occur are weakness or paralysis of the limbs and disruption of sensory function / sensation in that part (for example tingling or numbness).
Healing of spinal cord injuries varies greatly depending on how severe the injury is and how quickly treatment is given to the sufferer. Therefore, the best step to get this information is to consult a neurosurgeon specialist who treats your sister because the doctor has already performed an examination and surgery on your sister so that she better understands the current condition. Don't hesitate to ask your doctor and other medical teams about the next treatment that your younger sibling should go through. To help cure, in addition to medication, sufferers will generally be advised to undergo a physical therapy program, occupational therapy, and others.
Hopefully this information is useful.
