My 66-year-old dad got traumatic quadriplegia after a road traffic accident. He underwent cervical decompression and laminectomy. There is a slight improvement in his hands, neck, and shoulder movements. But, his legs are not moving at all. Will he ever be able to move his legs again? Will physiotherapy help? Currently, he is not under any medication except for motion tablets, and he has had a tracheostomy in the past. I am attaching his MRI report.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I just read your query and saw the MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) report (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity).
I hope you are satisfied with my answer.
