Spinal cord injury
Description of disease
Spinal cord injury refers to damage to the spinal cord, an elongated bundle of nerves contained within the vertebrae that form the spinal column, and this is caused by dislocation or fracture of the spine because of a strong impact. This is often caused by trauma such as falls from high places or other violent collisions, often as a result of traffic accidents or sports injuries.
In the case of the cervical spine, the spinal canal is narrower, and the patient may have an underlying condition such as ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament or it may be damaged by a minor impact such as a fall. Paralysis and sensory impairment may occur below the area of the nerves affected by the spinal cord where the injury occurred. Paralysis is classified as complete paralysis and partial paralysis. The former refers to a state of complete loss of spinal cord function, in which the patient is unable to move or feel anything, whereas the latter refers to a condition in which some spinal cord function remains. In mild cases, the patient may be able to move to some extent.
Therapy and administration
SHED-CM therapy (nasal drops)
·SHED-CM is delivered to the cranial nerves via nasal drops. This therapy method is expected to regenerate damaged nerve cells, leading to an improvement in symptoms*. Nasal drops are administered by a doctor at the first visit, and then you are prescribed a month's supply of the nasal drops. With these, you can administer the therapy every day by yourself.
