What are some common spinal cord injury treatments?

Spinal cord injuries are some of the most difficult to live with. They significantly impact your health and wellbeing, and they may change the way you live your life.

Spinal injuries range significantly from patient to patient. As someone with one, though, you should know that there are some nonsurgical and surgical options that may be open to you. The right treatment protocol could help you get through this injury and on the path to better health sooner.

What are some nonsurgical methods of treating a spinal cord injury?

Some nonsurgical methods of treating spinal cord injuries include:

  • Using injections, like injected corticosteroids, to reduce inflammation, pain and pressure on the spinal cord
  • Decompression exercises and techniques
  • Physical therapy to strengthen surrounding muscles
  • Medical management, such as chronic pain management

What are some surgical methods of treating spinal cord injuries?

Some surgical treatments for spinal cord injuries include:

  • Lumbar disc microsurgery
  • Spinal fusion
  • Spinal cord stimulator implantation
  • Interspinous Process Decompression

...and others.

Why is it important to have a treatment plan for a spinal cord injury?

Having a good treatment plan has two purposes. The first is to give you a kind of schedule of treatment, so you know what you're expected to do and when. This will allow medical providers to monitor your recovery better.

Second, having a treatment plan gives you something to show to your attorney for the purposes of seeking compensation. Knowing what kinds of treatments you'll need can help the insurance company or court understand just how much compensation it's going to take to care for your injury.
