The brain and spinal cord are the central nervous system structures located in the inner part of our head and its continuation spine, which provide the movements and balance of the body.
Damages such as bleeding or other swelling that may occur in the brain tissue after blows to the head, and tumors or cysts formed due to other reasons are manifested by coma, speech disorders, or paralysis on one side of the body, depending on the brain region they suppress. Various compression conditions on the nerves that control the movement or sensation of our face cause painful or painless facial tics. In addition, movement disorders (Parkinson's disease, cramps in the arms or legs) that occur especially in advanced age and are seen as a result of the deficiency of certain substances in the brain are also common brain diseases.
The spine is a structure that holds the body upright and protects the spinal cord. Tumor or bleeding that may occur in the spinal cord can cause paralysis and numbness below the level where it is present. The disc between the spinal bones provides the flexibility of the spine. Disc herniation occurs when the discs rupture and press on the nerves. Disc herniations in the neck region may cause pain in the middle of the back, arms and neck, while weakness and loss of sensation may accompany the pain. As a result of neck hernias and narrowing of the spinal bones in the neck region, imbalance in the body and inability to use their hands may occur.
With the rupture of the discs in the back region, pain in the feet and back, as well as weakness in the legs, inability to walk and urinary incontinence may occur.
In disc ruptures in the lumbar region, pain hitting the hip and leg may cause weakness or loss of sensation in the feet and fingers. The narrowing of the lumbar vertebrae and the decrease in walking distance may cause the need for rest while walking.
Congenital or over time lumbar vertebra slippage may occur and compression of the nerve roots may cause pain, numbness and weakness.
Curvatures of the spine are called scoliosis. Deformities that may occur in the shoulders, back or waist in childhood or adolescence are warning signs for scoliosis.
Tumors of the spine or spinal cord; It may present with night pain, pain that does not respond to painkillers, spinal deformity, weakness, and urinary and stool incontinence.
Spinal curvature may occur as a result of spinal fracture or damage to late connective tissues after trauma. In the first months following the trauma, control back or waist curvatures and deformities should be monitored. Damages that may develop in the late period may present with pain, weakness or deformities in the back, waist or legs.
The nerves that provide the movement of the arms and legs may be under pressure by the surrounding tissues. Numbness, burning, and weakness in the muscles it controls may occur within the area of influence of the affected nerve.
