CareCure
Ten Frequently Asked Questions Concerning Cure of Spinal Cord Injury

Wise Young, Ph.D., M.D.

Many questions recur repeatedly on CareCure every few days.  On 21 July 2004, I posted a summary of answers to the ten most frequently asked questions on CareCure (Link) .  That thread received over 450 responses and over 80,000 page-views. Here, I update some of responses to the questions and will expand each of the answers with sequential articles to follow. 

1. Will there be a cure for spinal cord injury?
2. When will a cure be available?
3. Will a cure work for chronic spinal cord injury?
4. What can I do now to be ready for the cure?
5. What can I do about spasticity, spasms, and neuropathic pain?
6. How can I exercise and will it do any good?
7. What is osteoporosis, its mechanisms and consequences, and ways to reverse it?
8. What is autonomic dysreflexia, its mechanisms and consequences, and treatments?
9. What is syringomyelia, its mechanisms and consequences, and treatments?
10. How does spinal cord injury affect sexual function and what can be done to improve such function?
