Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

SCI is caused when the spine is fractured or dislocated by a trauma. The trauma causes the fragmented bone materials to affect the spinal disc, bruise the ligament of spinal cord tissue or damaging it and in some cases, it may ruin the cord entirely and results in partial or complete paralysis. SCI is a life-threatening and devastating condition that affects life in all the aspects of the person such as physical, psychological and social health. Despite the devastating nature of the condition, there has been a dramatic improvement in the survival rate over the past 40 years, particularly in high - income countries.
