Treating Spinal Cord Injuries
A serious spinal cord injury can leave an individual with life-altering disabilities that may prevent him or her from ever returning to work or participating in the hobbies and activities he or she once enjoyed. Although there are several treatment options available that can help mitigate the complications associated with spinal cord damage, they are often incredibly expensive. However, the dedicated legal team of Hach & Rose, LLP, can help spinal cord injury victims in New York fight for the full, generous compensation they deserve from the person or party at fault for their pain and suffering.
Spinal Cord Injury Treatment Options
Spinal cord injury treatment depends largely on the location and extent of one’s injury. In cases where the spinal cord is severely damaged or even completely severed, victims typically have fewer treatment options than individuals who only have relatively minor spinal cord damage. However, the following are common treatments for spinal cord injuries:
- Medications, especially for pain management
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy and vocational counseling
- Orthotic devices or other disability-specific equipment
While this treatment may not reverse the damage done to the spinal cord, an injured individual can still experience a noticeable improvement in his or her quality of life improvements as well as a regained sense of confidence and independence.
