Types of Spinal Cord Disorders

For more information about types of Spinal Cord Disorders, refer to our section on types of Spinal Cord Disorders.

About prevalence:

The medical term 'prevalence' of Spinal Cord Disorders usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Spinal Cord Disorders at any given time, whereas the annual diagnosis rate of new cases of Spinal Cord Disorders is called the 'incidence'. For more information on prevalence and incidence statistics, see about prevalence and incidence statistics.
