  • Spinal Cord Injuries

    A spinal cord injury usually begins with a sudden, traumatic blow to the spine that fractures or dislocates vertebrae. The damage begins at the moment of injury when displaced bone fragments, disc material, or ligaments bruise or tear into spinal cord tissue. Most injuries to the spinal cord don’t completely sever it. Instead, an injury is more likely to cause fractures and compression of the vertebrae, which then crush and destroy axons - extensions of nerve cells that carry signals up and down the spinal cord between the brain and the rest of the body. An injury to the spinal cord can damage a few, many, or almost all of these axons. Some injuries allow for almost complete recovery. Others result in partial or complete paralysis.

    A transient ischemic attack (TIA) is a transient stroke that lasts only a few minutes. This is often called a “mini stroke”. This type of stroke was recently brought to light when former Houston Texans Head Coach Gary Kubiak suffered a mini stroke during an NFL game this past season. It occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is briefly interrupted. TIA or mini stroke symptoms usually occur suddenly and are similar to those of stroke but do not last as long. Most symptoms disappear within an hour, although they could persist for up to 24 hours. Symptoms can include:
