SCI Progress has been providing progressive, responsible healthcare guides to increase awareness and understanding of spinal cord injuries. Committed to in-depth research and the latest technologies to help individuals with spinal cord injuries, SCI Progress has announced the launch of their website.
Taking into consideration the life-altering effects of spinal cord injuries, SCI Progress offers a wealth of information about all things related to this type of injury. Their newly launched website expands extensively on the issue of spinal cord injuries, backing up information with proven data and statistics.
To help individuals better understand the anatomy of the spine as well as the different ways in which it can be damaged, the SCI Progress website aims to be an effective and comprehensive guide to spinal cord injuries, which also offers useful information about rehabilitation and recovery.
As contained in their guide, a spokesperson for SCI Progress said, “The time immediately after an injury is often crucial, especially one of this nature. What you do with this time can be defining for the rest of the individual’s life. For best results, it’s good to understand what you are dealing with and have basic knowledge regarding the anatomy of the spine and spinal cord injuries.”
Further expanding on the case, the SCI Progress website explains some of the common causes of spinal cord injuries. Classified as either traumatic or non-traumatic spinal cord injuries, some of the identified causes of traumatic spinal cord injuries, as contained in their comprehensive guide, include sports injuries, motor vehicle accidents, falls, violence, diving into shallow water, amongst other causes.
Non-traumatic spinal cord injuries can, however, be caused by injuries and/or illnesses. Some of the common causes of non-traumatic spinal cord injuries, as contained in their guide, include osteoporosis, cancer, inflammation of the spinal cord, arthritis, multiple sclerosis and more. Their guide further reveals that spinal cord injuries occur more in men compared to women, between 16 to 30 years of age.
Spinal cord injuries may also lead to common symptoms exhibited in affected individuals. Some of the common symptoms may include loss of sensation, loss of movement, loss of bladder and/or bowel control, changes in sexual sensitivity, function and fertility, exaggerated spasms or reflex actions, intense stinging sensation or pain, and more.
Spinal cord injuries may also spark some symptoms which require emergency assistance. Some of these emergency symptoms include:
Extreme pain in the back
Extreme pressure in the back, head or neck
Paralysis, weakness or incoordination in any of the body parts
Tingling, numbness or loss of sensation in toes, feet, fingers or hands
Loss of bowel or bladder control
Difficulty with walking and balance
Impaired breathing in the aftermath of an injury
Twisted or improperly positioned back or neck
To help further increase awareness and understanding of spinal cord injuries, the website is also supported by the SCI Progress Facebook page, wherein, questions, inspirational stories, and observations are regularly shared.
