Arachnoiditis and Spinal Cord Trauma

When a person sustains a traumatic injury to their back, they may damage portions of their spinal cord. In some cases, this trauma can result in a particularly devastating condition known as arachnoiditis. Arachnoiditis is a permanent spinal cord disability that causes severe pain for those affected by it. Although pain management options may be available, there are, sadly, no cures available for this disability.

Symptoms of Arachnoiditis

Depending on the portion of the spinal cord affected, different injured individuals may experience various symptoms and dysfunctions. However, the following are common issues that can be linked to arachnoiditis:

  • Chronic pain
  • Loss of feeling in the extremities
  • Tingling sensations in the extremities
  • Bowel and bladder dysfunction
  • Sexual dysfunction

An injured individual may not be able to cure this disorder medically, but they can certainly take steps to make themselves more comfortable. These pain and disability management options may prove expensive, though. However, in cases where a person’s arachnoiditis was caused by someone else’s negligent actions or errors, the responsible party may actually be liable for these expenses.
