Critical Spinal Cord Injury Symptoms

Some people who are injured in an accident do not fully understand that their newly developed symptoms are the result of an injury to their spinal cord area.

If you or a loved one suffer from weakness in the hands or legs, sometimes resulting in you or a loved one dropping items, that is a radicular symptom caused by physical trauma to the spinal cord area, be it the cervical or lumbar spine.

Other radicular symptoms associated with an injury to the spinal cord area would be numbness – constant or sporadic – in the arms and hands or legs and feet or shooting pain going down the upper or lower extremities.

Any of these symptoms should be immediately diagnosed by a medical professional specializing in orthopedics or neurology.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are commonly referred to as concussions and have been in the news lately because of the exposure by former and current professional football players.

The types of concussions that football players suffer sometimes pale in comparison to what happens to a person’s brain when the head is slammed against a headrest or side window with enough force to break the window.

Those kinds of blows are similar to suffering several cumulative minor concussions, like those experienced by football players.  And it is these football players – who have suffered several cumulative concussions – that have been found to have developed chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) over time.

Because CTE cannot be diagnosed in living patients, we have only seen evidence of CTE in former football players who have dedicated their brains to medicine.  And the ones that have dedicated their brains, CTE is almost always discovered.

Researchers anticipate being able to diagnosis CTE in living patients in five years.

The recent movie Concussion told the story of Dr. Bennet Omalu, who authored a report linking CTE to multiple concussions suffered in former football players.
