Ensuring a strong recovery after a spinal cord injury is one of the most important elements of our client’s journey as well as an important part of their personal injury claim. Spinal cord injuries (SCIs) widely vary in their complexity and the short and long term impact they will have on our client’s life.
SCIs may only limit your range of motion so that a cane or walker can help you to resume normal life activities during recovery. In other cases, you may be confined to a wheelchair and serious back injuries can leave the patient totally dependent upon constant medical care. It is important to understand ensuring a strong recovery after a spinal cord injury is going to require a long rehabilitation process.
Some SCIs only require physical therapy, while others may involve multiple surgeries and the implementation of hardware to support the spine.Doctors usually break the recovery process into two phases: the acute phase and the rehabilitation phase. The acute phase is associated with immediate medical attention, diagnosis and treatment. Once the immediate injuries have been diagnosed, stabilized and treated the rehabilitation phase begins. Rehabilitation focuses on helping you to recover as much range of motion as possible and to learn how to integrate your condition into your everyday life.
Ensuring a strong recovery after a spinal cord injury is primarily about the quality of life for those who suffer a back injury.
