Spinal Cord Injuries Archives

Spinal cord injury caused by car accident may cause pain issues

Suffering injuries to the spinal cord in West Virginia can understandably be both physically and emotionally debilitating. Following a car accident or another type of accident leading to spinal cord injuries, an individual may struggle to operate independently and may also suffer from pain. Regarding pain, a recent study indicated that spinal cord injury patients' pain management should be based on their pain levels and subtypes.

Respiratory issues may plague some spinal cord injury victims

Injuries to the spine can unfortunately have negative long-term impacts on a patient in West Virginia. For instance, some spinal cord injury patients who become paralyzed end up having to breathe with ventilators. However, researchers recently discovered that lab-grown neural cells may one day enable these patients to breathe without their ventilators' help.

Gene therapy may benefit spinal cord injury patients

The body responds to injuries to the spinal cord by creating scar issue, thus sealing the spinal wound. However, this also prevents new tissue from being created following a spinal cord injury. Fortunately, researchers have found a high-potential genetic trigger that they could target to enhance how the spinal cord recovers from an injury -- a scientific step that may give hope to spinal cord injury patients in West Virginia and elsewhere.

Spinal cord injury study to involve stem cells, virtual reality

Facilitating recovery from spine-related injuries remains a major goal of doctors involved in regenerative medicine. After all, many patients who suffer from spinal cord injury and paralysis in West Virginia were active people prior to the incidents that suddenly led to their life-altering injuries. A new study that recently received approval from an institutional review board may yield helpful insights into the use of stem cells derived from bone marrow to help spinal cord injury victims.

Spinal cord injury patients may benefit from using special bikes

Injury to the spinal cord is typically linked to physical impairments in the long term. Unfortunately, these impairments may lead to psychological and social complications that have a negative impact on a patient's quality of life in West Virginia and other states. However, recent research indicated that special bikes may help to improve the quality of life of those suffering from spinal cord injury.

Spinal cord injury patients may benefit from stem cell growth

Many illnesses can be addressed with the use of stem cells. Likewise, stem cells may help those suffering from spinal cord injury in West Virginia and elsewhere. However, growing a large number of these cells has proved challenging over the years. Fortunately, thanks to scientific developments, making these cells is starting to become easier.

Nanoparticle injection may help spinal cord injury victims

Following injury to the spinal cord, secondary nerve damage can occur due to internal scarring and inflammation. Unfortunately, this prevents the nervous system from being able to repair itself. However, according to a new study, a nanoparticle that is injected following spinal cord injury may be able to prevent the problematic scarring and inflammation, which may provide hope to spinal cord injury patients in West Virginia and elsewhere.

Spinal cord injury patients may be helped by their own minds

Spinal cord injuries in West Virginia can unfortunately lead to the loss of feeling and mobility. However, devices known as neuroprosthetics may help spinal cord injury patients with sensory or motor disabilities to gain control of these senses again. These brain-computer interfaces essentially work by building a connection between a computer and the patient's brain.

The Cost of Spinal Cord Injuries

If you've had the misfortune of injuring your spine, then you know the turmoil that accompanies such a horrible event. Beyond the astronomical medical bills, a spinal cord injury can result in loss of income, severe emotional distress, and persistent life-altering physical pain.

New therapy involving cells may help spinal cord injury patients

Spinal cord injuries can take their toll on patients in West Virginia both physically and emotionally. However, a brand new therapy for treating spinal cord injury may give hope to people who have lost their sensory and motor function below their injury sites. The new therapy involves the use of AST-OPC1 cells.
