Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) refers to an injury in the Spinal Cord, mainly as a result from traumatic injuries, including from motor vehicle accidents, sports, and more. Patients with Spinal Cord Injury suffer from a disconnection between the brain and the Spinal Cord, which will affect the motor functions, voluntary movements, reflex, cardiovascular functions, bowel and bladder movement, sensory, and more.
The Spinal Cord is divided into four sections, starting from Cervical Spinal Cord, which is located just below the base of the neck, down to Thoracic Spinal Cord, Lumbar Spinal Cord, and Sacral Spine. The severity of the injury depends on which section of the Spinal Cord is damaged; Cervical Spinal Cord being the most severe. Even though Spinal Cord Injury was viewed as a permanently untreatable condition, Stem Cell Treatments especially through the LamiSpine Surgery has proven otherwise. It has marked the new beginning of an alternative solution for all Spinal Cord Injury patients.
