Cauda Equina Injury

Cauda Equina Injury

A Cauda Equina injury is an injury to the bottom of the spinal cord: the lumbar vertebrae and or the sacral vertebrae. This causes loss of sensation and control over the bladder, bowels and sexual function. It can also cause loss of power and sensation to the lower limbs. Also it results in loss of reflexes which makes it harder to manage loss of bladder and bowel control.
