​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Back Pain

Spinal cord compression is a term that is used to describe any condition that puts excess pressure on the spinal cord. Compression of the spinal cord may lead to a number of uncomfortable side effects, all of which may limit a person’s physical capabilities and decrease their quality of life. When non-surgical treatment fails to offer relief to patients suffering from spinal compression, Dr. Luis Manuel Tumialán can offer minimally invasive spine procedures that address back problems and help patients lead a more active and comfortable life.  To learn more about spinal decompression, contact our Scottsdale, AZ practice today.

Cervical spinal cord injury outlook

People who have experienced a cervical spinal cord injury affecting the C1-C4 vertebrae will almost certainly have some paralysis, ranging from full body paralysis to quadriplegia. Many will not be able to breath independently and although some may be able to use a power-wheelchair to regain a small amount of independence, most patients with a C1 or C2 injury will require constant care for the rest of their life.
