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.
If you are struggling with pain, weakness, loss of function, or other symptoms of spinal complications, contact Dr. Tumialán's office today.
