The immediate effect of spinal cord injury (SCI) is a mechanical trauma that results in direct damage at the lesion site followed by secondary responses leading to loss of adjacent neurons and glia. Consequently, SCI leads to paralysis and loss of sensation below the level of the injury, altered autonomic responses and, frequently, the development of abnormal sensation and pain. Substantial endogenous remodeling of the spinal cord occurs [6] as axons begin to sprout and cells, including… CONTINUE READING
