Treatment for Spinal Injury
Any trauma or damage to the spinal cord or related nerves can cause numerous symptoms, such as pain, reduced strength and mobility, numbness, paralysis and loss of bodily functions. The exact location of the trauma will determine what parts of the body may suffer related difficulties.
