Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) is damage to the spinal cord that leads to loss of muscle function and sensation in parts of the body below the site of injury. Patients can suffer from both motor and sensory weakness, with or without the involvement of the sphincter (the muscle responsible for control over urination or defecation).
Generally, patients tend not to feel any sensation below the site of the injury, but the region is often characterized by severe weakness.
SCIs can have devastating effects on people’s lives. However, with stem cell therapy and a comprehensive neuro-rehabilitation program, Plexus can help make the dream of complete rehabilitation a reality.
