Spinal cord injury FAQs

Where can I go to get more information about recovering from spinal cord injuries?

Both the American Paralysis Association and the National Spinal Cord Injury Association maintain good websites. The American Association of Neurological Surgeons is also an excellent resource.

What are typical symptoms of Washington spinal cord injuries?

Different injuries lead to different symptoms; every accident is unique in its complications. However, common complaints include:

  • numbness in the hands, feet, head, or neck
  • tingling sensations in the extremities
  • difficulty breathing
  • strange bumps along the vertebrae or on the head or neck
  • extreme tension in the neck or anywhere along the spine
  • paralysis or loss of control over parts of the body, particularly the extremities.

What can be done to treat spinal cord injuries?

The answer again depends on the cause(s). Damage from trauma can in some ways be easier to deal with than damage from ongoing problems, such as tumors, cysts, neurodegenerative illnesses, and demyelination. Physical therapy, surgery, medications, and the applied use of prosthetics can be helpful in some patients.

For injured parties suffering from structural spinal cord injuries, Myofascial Tissue Intervention can be useful. For instance, the Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais Movement, and supervised yoga can be useful in restoring some function. Trigger Point Massage or the applied use of an Acuscope/Myopulse to deal with Trigger Point issues can likewise yield good results.
