The spinal cord is an important part of the central nervous system and a carrier of information between the brain and external nerves. Old sports spinal cord injury is a serious neurological disease that is difficult to cure and can cause serious sequelae, and even cause patients with general paralysis and high paraplegia. It has become the number one public enemy in the medical world. Spinal cord and nerve root microsurgery are an effective way to treat old motor spinal cord injury. The purpose of this article is to solve some problems in the implementation of spinal cord and nerve root microsurgery, and analyze the specific effect of microsurgery on the treatment of old sports spinal cord injury. Microsurgery is used to loosen the spinal cord and nerve roots of the patient, follow-up and follow-up of the patient is carried out, and the treatment effect is studied. The results of the study show that, compared with traditional surgical treatment, microsurgery can relieve the spinal cord and nerve roots of patients by 22%, 86.3% of patients have significant spinal function recovery, and 78.6% of patients have significantly improved motor function. In 90% of patients, the nerve roots of the spinal cord segment felt significantly improved, which proved the correctness and feasibility of spinal cord and nerve root microsurgery for the treatment of old motor spinal cord injury.
