Scar tissue may promote nerve regrowth

A serious accident can leave a North Carolina resident dealing with long-term motor losses because of a spinal cord injury. However, a study conducted by UCLA researchers may aid in developing strategies for promoting regrowth that could help such injuries to heal more effectively in the future. Conventional thought has previously suggested that scar tissue would hinder the regrowth of nerve cells, but this may be incorrect.

Human Clinical Trial test for spinal research approved by FDA

Spinal cord injuries affect many people throughout the nation. In fact, according to one statistic, every 48 minutes someone is left paralyzed. These injuries occur in a variety of types of accidents including motor vehicle accidents and sports accidents. Because these injuries can strike someone down when he or she is in the prime of their life, it can be extremely difficult to come to terms with. It is that much harder when it occurs as a result of someone else's negligent actions. 

Swimming accidents could lead to spinal injuries

There are many activities that residents of the state of North Carolina save for the summer season. Swimming outside is one of those things. While some people prefer to relax in the water while using a flotation device, others prefer to be more active and at any opportunity will dive, head first, into the water. Unfortunately, this activity could be dangerous and result in serious injuries.

2 acrobats suffer spinal injuries in circus accident

Circus acts have intrigued individuals throughout the nation since their creation. While many of the acts are awe inspiring, for many spectators, those involving acrobats are particularly thrilling. Recent circus spectators received a bigger thrill than they likely expected when a carabiner fastener failed sending acrobats performing in a “human chandelier” act to the floor, 20 feet below. A total of nine individuals were injured in the incident, eight acrobats and one person on the ground below. After the acrobats fell, the frame that supported them fell upon them. It weighed 350 pounds.

Spinal cord research leads to unexpected breakthrough

Each day people throughout the nation suffer spinal cord injuries that leave them paralyzed. Whether paraplegic or quadriplegic, life following such an injury will never be the same. Because of the dramatic impact a spinal injury has on the life of the affected person, as well as his or her loved ones, researchers are always looking for viable treatment options. Recently treatment described as “a breakthrough,” was published in the journal Brain.
