Spinal cord injury treatment

Spinal cord injuries are very serious because the damage can not be reversed. Since the damage cannot be reversed, spinal cord injury treatments today work on preventing further injury. In the early stages of the treatment, the doctors help you to maintain your ability to breathe and prevent shock. After the early stages are completed the doctor will move on to determine if surgery is needed to stabilize the injury. Then you will move on to rehabilitation where you may work with a physical therapist.
