Questions your doctor may ask to check for cervical cord injury

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose cervical cord injury

  • Do you have difficulty in getting up from a chair on your own?

  • Do you have numbness anywhere on your chest, stomach, or back?

  • Do you feel any weakness in your arms or legs?

Treatment for cervical cord injury

This requires emergency medical care. Treatment in the early stage focuses on immobilizing the spine to prevent further damage - this can be done with a brace and surgery. Breathing difficulties and low blood pressure must also be addressed. In the later stage, treatment aims to recover as much muscle power as possible. This can be done with physical therapy at a rehabilitation facility.
