Chiropractic Vacaville CA Preventing A Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injuries are more common than one might think. However, technological advances have made it easier to diagnose these issues earlier on, which makes prevention and treatment more attainable at our Vacaville CA chiropractic clinic.

If you or someone close to you are suffering from spinal cord injury, you can find some support by reaching out to organizations like The Foundation for Spinal Cord Injury Prevention, Care & Cure (FSCIPCC). Having such a support group will help you learn from others who have also been in the same situation as you.

Since most spinal cord injuries are "accidental", preventing this one can be challenging compared to other health issues. For example, you can prevent diabetes early on by exercising and eating right, but you can not easily prevent a vehicle accident from happening. This is the case for many spinal injuries because they commonly occur from sports injuries, vehicle accidents, acts of violence, and accidents at the workplace. It is best if any spinal cord injuries are then reported so that regulations will be implemented to ensure the safety of others.

A spinal cord injury is any damage that has been inflicted to the spinal cord and results in a loss of mobility or functionality in the spine. If you believe you are suffering from a spinal cord injury, you should setup an appointment with your health care professional right away. The spinal cord is a crucial part of the central nervous system and it serves as the foundation of your entire upper body. It spans from the brain all the way down to the waist area. Obviously, having any severe injury to this area can end up in a loss of feeling and paralysis.


The Effects Of A Spinal Cord Injury In Vacaville CA

The effects of your injury may depend on which area of the spine has been affected. Your spine consists of 4 main parts, and we will discuss about it down below. The description will be simplified so if you need a more detailed description, you can always consult our clinic about it.

  • Cervical - Any injury to this region (neck) will often result in loss of arm and hand control and could give you breathing difficulties.
  • Lumbar - An injury to this area will often result in loss of control of the legs.
  • Thoracic - Injuries to this region will often result in loss of control of the chest, torso, and abdominal area.
  • Sacral - An injury to the sacral region will result in issues with the bladder and your sexual abilities.
