RCS 6080 Medical and Psychosocial Aspects of Rehabilitation Counseling Spinal Cord Injury Anatomy of the Spine Vertebrae Body

Lamina Towards the back Boney arch surrounds spinal canal Spinous process Front section, shaped like drum Supports weight Boney process from arch

Points of attachment for muscles and ligaments Discs Cushions between vertebrae Anatomy of the Spine Vertebrae: 7 Cervical 12 Thoracic

Larger boney structures to support added wgt 5 Sacral Chest region, allows mostly for rotation 5 Lumbar Flexion, extension, bending and turning of

head Fused together Coccyx Anatomy of the Cord Cervical Cord

C1-C2: C3-4: Phrenic nucleus C4: Deltoids C4-5: Biceps C6: Wrist extensors C7: Triceps C8: Wrist extensors C8-T1: Hand muscles Anatomy of the Cord Thoracic Cord Lumbarsacral

Intercostal muscles and associated dermatones Starts at T9 and continues to L2 Innervates hips, legs, buttocks and anal region Cauda Equina (horses tail) Spinal cord ends at L2 Tip called conus, below conus a spray of spinal roots Dermatomes/Sensory Level

Dermatome: patch of skin innervated by a given spinal cord level C2 to C4. The C2 dermatome Myotomes/Motor Level Myotome: Spinal nerve roots which innervates

muscles groups Most muscles are innervated by more than one root ASIA Impairment Scale ASIA A: Complete: no motor or sensory function is preserved in the sacral segments S4-S5 ASIA B: Incomplete: sensory but NOT motor

function is preserved below the neurological level and includes the sacral segments ASIA C: Incomplete: motor function is preserved below the neurological level and more than half of key muscles below the neurological level have a muscle grade <3 ASIA D: Incomplete: motor function is preserved w/ muscle grade > 3 ASIA E: Normal Definition of Disability Tetraplegia (preferred to quadriplegia)

Refers to impairment or loss of motor/ sensory function in cervical segments of the spinal cord Impairment of function in arms, trunk, legs and pelvic organs ASIA Scale vs quadriparesis Definition of Disability Paraplegia

Refers to impairment or loss of motor/ sensory function in thoracic, lumbar or sacral segments of the spinal cord Arm function spared Possible impairment of function in trunk, legs and pelvic organs ASIA Scale vs paraparesis Clinical Syndromes Central Cord Syndrome:

lesion occurring almost exclusively in the cervical region Sacral sensory sparing Weakness > UE vs LE Brown-Sequard Syndrome: Lesion that produces ipsilateral, proprioceptive and motor loss and contralateral loss of sensitivity to pain and temp Clinical Syndromes Anterior Cord Syndrome:

Lesion that produces variable loss of motor function and of sensitivity while preserving proprioception Cauda Equina Syndrome: Injury to the lumbosacral nerve roots w/ in the neurocanal resulting in areflexive bladder, bowel and lower limbs Achievement of Functional Goals
