Between 8,000 and 10,000 people experience a spinal cord injury (SCI) each year, causing about 250,000 people today to be living with the condition. MRIs (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) have revolutionized SCI diagnosis and treatment, because they allow PM&R physicians to visualize the damage to the spinal cord and can help them diagnose new symptoms that arise.
PM&R physicians have been pioneers in the treatment and management of spinal cord injuries. Typically, the physiatrist is brought in within 24-48 hours after the injury to coordinate any non-surgical treatment and continues as the patient's primary attending physician.
