A Look Into Treatment Options for Spinal Cord Injury Patients
Spinal cord injury is considered as a form of catastrophic injury due to the extent to which it can disrupt one’s life. Spinal cord injuries are typically seen after car accidents, serious industrial accidents as well as an offshoot of medical malpractice where you go for one procedure and the doctor, through negligence, injures your spinal cord. While it is possible to live a somewhat normal life after a spinal cord injury, you may not be able to do some of the things you used to take for granted such as simply going for a walk round the neighborhood. You may have to endure a number of surgeries and be enrolled into a physical therapy program to get you to learn to walk again, use your hands and so on. In this post, we’ll take a look at some of the treatment options available for spinal cord injury sufferers as well as the legal options for justice and compensation available to them.

Spinal Stabilization for Spinal Cord Injury
Before doctors start treating your spinal cord injury, it is important that they stabilize your spine in order to prevent further complications. This is typically done at the scene of the accident, and after this, you are moved to the ER. Stabilizing the spinal cord as well as the neck has the intended effect of stabilizing your heartbeat, making sure that blood flows as it should, clears up your throat and esophagus, and making it possible for EMT specialists to start administering medication on site to lower inflammation.
Surgery for Spinal Cord Injury
Surgery for spinal cord injury is very common as this helps get rid of bone fragments in the spinal area as well as removes any shards of glass or other debris that may have dug themselves into your back. In addition, doctors perform what’s called decompressive surgery in order to relieve pressure on any herniated disks that may be placing undue pressure on your spine. In addition, tendon transfer surgery is done much later in order to help with the movement of your hand and arm.
