Transcript of RCS 6080 Medical and Psychosocial Aspects of Rehabilitation Counseling Spinal Cord Injury

  • Slide 1
  • RCS 6080 Medical and Psychosocial Aspects of Rehabilitation Counseling Spinal Cord Injury
  • Slide 2
  • Anatomy of the Spine Vertebrae Body Front section, shaped like drum Supports weight Lamina Towards the back Boney arch surrounds spinal canal Spinous process Boney process from arch Points of attachment for muscles and ligaments Discs Cushions between vertebrae
  • Slide 3
  • Slide 4
  • Anatomy of the Spine Vertebrae: 7 Cervical Flexion, extension, bending and turning of head 12 Thoracic Chest region, allows mostly for rotation 5 Lumbar Larger boney structures to support added wgt 5 Sacral Fused together Coccyx
  • Slide 5
  • Slide 6
  • 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
  • Slide 7
  • Anatomy of the Cord Thoracic Cord Intercostal muscles and associated dermatones Lumbarsacral 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
  • Slide 8
  • Slide 9
  • Dermatomes/Sensory Level Dermatome: patch of skin innervated by a given spinal cord level
  • Slide 10
  • C2 to C4. The C2 dermatome
  • Slide 11
  • Myotomes/Motor Level Myotome: Spinal nerve roots which innervates muscles groups Most muscles are innervated by more than one root
  • Slide 12
  • Slide 13
  • Slide 14
  • 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 E: Normal
  • Slide 15
  • 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
  • Slide 16
  • 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
  • Slide 17
  • 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
  • Slide 18
  • 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
  • Slide 19
  • Achievement of Functional Goals Age Body type Comorbidities Prior athletic sense Fatigue level Type of stabilization HX HO/POA Spasticity Psychosocial factors Nutrition
  • Slide 20
  • Functional Outcomes Motor/sensory recovery Ability to perform or direct ADLs Social reintegration Quality of life
  • Slide 21
