A spinal cord injury is a major injury that can be life-altering. When you suffer a spinal cord injury through no fault of your own, you may be unable to work or even complete daily activities due to the result of your injury, such as paralysis. A car accident or on the job incident can result in the crushing or fracturing of vertebrae which can then cause paralysis of the entire body or portion of the body. When you are injured, it is important to have your spinal cord injury diagnosed and then proper treatment provided. 

At Cueria Law Firm, we want to provide you with legal advice based on your individual case. If your spinal cord injury occurred due to the negligent or reckless behavior of another person, you may be entitled to compensation. With monetary compensation, you will be able to see quality treatment for your condition, hopefully learning how to live again after the injury. 

Diagnosis

Spine injuries can be difficult to diagnose due to certain factors. It is important to be diagnosed quickly so that no action is taken that can lead to a more severe injury. The doctor assisting you will need to complete a patient inspection and ask the right questions about how the accident occurred. Diagnostic testing may be completed if the patient is unable to speak or is having major pain in the neck/back area. 

X-rays will be used to see what area of the spine is affected. This testing phase can determine if any vertebral problems are present. A Computerized tomography scan, or CT scan, will usually be done after an X-ray to get a better look at any abnormalities found. This can help to find any disk or bone issues. 

Magnetic Resonance Imaging may also be used, known to the public as an MRI. Magnetic fields are used along with radio waves to create an image generated by a computer to help examine any compressions of the spinal cord or other issues. 

Treatment Types for Spinal Cord Injuries

Treatment for a spinal cord injury will begin on preventing any further damage to the patient and focus on helping the individual return to an active lifestyle. After the initial injury, stabilization will be used to avoid any further injury and the physicians will focus on helping you to breathe and avoiding any complications. In some cases, sedation is used to keep the patient from moving while testing is completed. 

Once an injury occurs, traction may be needed to stabilize and align the spine. This can include braces to keep the body stable or a neck collar, depending on the severity of the injury. Surgery may also be needed to prevent any deformity or pain in the future. 

The early stages of the recovery process should include rehabilitation. A team of individuals should be provided to assist with every need. This should include a physical therapist, rehabilitation nurse, occupational therapist, social worker, rehabilitation psychologist, recreation therapist, dietitian and medical specialist of your spinal injury condition.
