Brown Sequard Spinal Cord Injury: Know More

A Brown-Séquard spinal cord injury results in motor weakness or paralysis on one side of the body and sensory loss on the opposite side below the injury level. Proprioception and kinesthesia may be impaired, affecting balance and coordination. Bladder and bowel dysfunction are common, requiring management strategies. Recovery varies but often involves partial improvement with intensive rehabilitation. However, complete recovery is rare, and permanent disabilities may persist. Secondary complications such as muscle atrophy and infections are risks. Psychological and social support are crucial for individuals and families adapting to life with this type of injury.
