Spinal Cord Concussion

Concussions Cord Spinal


  • Thirteen cases are presented. A variety of clinical presentations may occur, all of which can be explained on the basis of the magnitude or direction of acceleration of the spinal cord.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A brief discussion of both OI and spinal cord concussion is presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The clinical and radiological features of 19 SCC injuries in the general population are presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The authors present the case of a professional ice hockey player, without evidence of canal compromise, who sustained an SCC during a regulation game after being struck by a puck in the upper cervical spine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Back Pain
  • After the massage, the patient felt severe upper back pain and bilateral dysesthesia, which did not improve following the ingestion of painkillers. Therefore, she was transported to our department by ambulance after one hour.[musculoskeletalkey.com]
  • The damaged disc can put pressure on the spinal nerves, potentially causing back pain or symptoms like numbness, tingling, or weakness in one of the arms or legs. Spinal fractures are also a common injury among wrestlers.[michaelgleibermd.com]
  • However, less than 0.1% of people with back pain who visit their general practitioner have spinal metastases [ 3 ] .[patient.info]

Flaccid Paralysis
  • Flaccid paralysis gradually changes over hours or days to spastic paralysis with increased deep tendon reflexes due to loss of descending inhibition.[merckmanuals.com]
  • Spinal cord injuries that cause neurologic shock generally produce: flaccid paralysis and complete loss of sedation distal to the injury.[quizlet.com]
  • Neurogenic Shock Presentation Flaccid paralysis distal to injury site Loss of autonomic function hypotension or relative hypotension vasodilation loss of bladder and bowel control priapism loss of thermoregulation warm, pink, dry below injury site relative[slideshare.net]
  • Flaccid paralysis, including of the bowel and bladder, is observed, and sometimes sustained priapism develops.[emedicine.medscape.com]
Localized Numbness
  • Localized numbness or tingling. Difficulty coordinating movements. Difficulty speaking. Problems with attention. A contusion often occurs after a fall, or a blow with a sharp object.[spinalcord.com]
Urinary Retention
  • One patient had perianal and genital sensory deficit and one (4.2%) had urinary retention.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Presentation [ edit ] CCS is characterized by disproportionately greater motor impairment in upper compared to lower extremities, and variable degree of sensory loss below the level of injury in combination with bladder dysfunction and urinary retention[en.wikipedia.org]
  • The latter can lead to neurogenic shock, paralytic ileus, aspiration, urinary retention, priapism and loss of thermoregulation. Clinical features depend upon the extent and rate of development of cord compression.[patient.info]


  • In more serious cases, further diagnostic workup maybe warranted.[nursing.advanceweb.com]

  • Immediate treatment can reduce long-term effects. Treatments may include medicines, braces or traction to stabilize the spine, and surgery. Later treatment usually includes medicines and rehabilitation therapy.[icdlist.com]
  • If there is a brain bleed or other serious symptom, this might require surgical treatment. Prognosis for Concussions Most people make a full recovery from a concussion, even without medical treatment.[spinalcord.com]

  • Prognosis for Concussions Most people make a full recovery from a concussion, even without medical treatment.[spinalcord.com]
  • Prognosis The spinal cord has very limited powers of regeneration. Prognosis for neurological deficit depends on the magnitude of the spinal cord damage present at the onset.[patient.info]
