what is spinal stroke
Let us tell you that proper blood supply is required for proper functioning of the spinal cord. Actually, the spinal cord itself works to send nerve impulses to the rest of the body. Due to the signals sent by the spinal cord, many functions of the body are done like moving the arms and legs and the operation of other parts of the body is also done by these signals. When there is no proper blood supply to the spinal cord, due to this the supply of oxygen to it also gets disturbed. This problem is also called spinal stroke as well as spine card infarction. Blood supply is usually broken due to blood clotting, injury or bleeding. Interruption of this supply damages the tissues and cells of the spine and can lead to cell death. Cells dying affects the operation of hands and feet. A person's hands and legs do not move, he can also be paralyzed.
