The MACP has translated the Cauda Equina Syndrome (CES) warning credit card into several languages which are available on the IFOMPT website which you are welcome to download and use for patients you may suspect could develop CES. This initiative has been used in the UK to empower patients to act on signs and symptoms of CES so that timely intervention can take place preventing life changing consequences.
