Adventist Health offers an integrated spine care approach to reduce pain, including medication, surgical interventions and physical therapy. Our staff listen to patients and then create a plan of care to fit his or her unique needs.
There are two major spinal injuries, traumatic and non-traumatic. Traumatic spinal cord injuries result from an accident that causes damage to the spinal cord. Non-traumatic spinal cord injuries result from compression, loss of blood flow or disruption to the spinal cord. These can be caused by tumors, infections or other diseases. Both traumatic and non-traumatic spinal cord injuries can cause weakness, loss of feeling below where the spinal cord was injured and/or paralysis.
Regardless of type, spinal cord Injuries can leave someone feeling helpless and isolated when they begin to realize a change in their abilities. Our team works with you to reduce pain and help you live your life to the fullest.
