Drug Treatments For New Injuries

NOTE: It is important to realize these drugs are not a cure for chronic (long-term) spinal cord injuries. It is heart-ening to note, however, that treatments finally are available to lessen the severity of some acute injuries.

Research has shown that all damage in SCI does not occur instantaneously. Mechanical disruption of nerves and nerve fibers occurs at the time of injury. Within 30 minutes, hemorrhaging is observed in the damaged area of the spinal cord and this may expand over the next few hours.

Treatment and Cure Research

Summary of Basic Science Research

As you can see by the facts detailed above, the problem of CNS response to injury is incredibly complex. No one theory or approach will overcome all of the effects of SCI, and many scientists now believe that the “cure” will not be found in a single approach, but rather in a combination of techniques. Consequently, it is important for all possible research areas to be addressed so our overall knowledge about how the system works may eventually lead to a cure for SCI.

Laserpuncture is a New Treatment for SCI?

LASERPUNCTURE FOR SPINAL CORD INJURY

Laurance Johnston, Ph.D. Laserpuncture is generating much attention in France and other parts of Europe as an alternative medicine treatment for spinal cord injury (SCI) and related physical disabilities. As the name implies, laserpuncture combines elements of acupuncture and laser therapy, both of which have shown potential for restoring some function after SCI. Albert Bohbot, a charismatic health professional, developed laserpuncture. Early in his career, he became interested in acupuncture’s potential for treating a variety of disorders. With the assistance of scientists at one of France’s leading engineering colleges, Bohbot developed a sophisticated electronic instrument that substituted an infrared laser light beam for acupuncture needles.

TYPES OF SPINAL INJURY

Published: April 1, 2000

Traumatic spinal cord injuries are associated with skeletal and ligamentous as well as intraspinal pathology. The most common Cervical level for spinal cord injury is C5, followed by C6 and then C4. T12 is the most common Thoracic level for spinal cord injury.

Traumatic spinal cord injuries are most commonly secondary to Motor vehicle accidents and gunshot wounds, followed by falls, bicycle accidents, and pedestrian verses auto accidents. Fractures, dislocations, bleeding and swelling can precipitate trauma to the cord.
