Spinal Cord Injuries
Insight from Los Angeles Injury Lawyers
The spine is a complex and delicate part of the human anatomy. When injuries
occur to the spinal cord, it can result in devastating symptoms and health
consequences for the victim. A spine injury can permanently change the
victim's life. Constant neck or back pain can be debilitating, preventing
the victim from participating in their normal work and social activities.
In more serious cases, paralysis may occur, creating serious debilitation,
loss of enjoyment of life, and heavy medical costs.
If you have suffered any type of spinal cord injury, make sure you

Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries have many causes and occur in a great many contexts,
- Vehicle accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Recreational accidents (sports, outdoor activities, etc.)
What all of these circumstances have in common is sudden movement of the
spine, compression of the spine, or a blunt force directly to the spine.
The injury may take place near the neck (cervical spinal cord injury),
in the lower back (lumbar spinal cord injury) or more rarely to the mid
back areas (thoracic spinal cord injury).
Treatment for Spinal Cord Injuries
If you have suffered a serious spinal cord injury, you most likely began
your treatment in a hospital emergency room; possibly even in emergency
surgery to fuse vertebrae and stabilize your back and/or neck. Treatment
options will commonly vary tremendously depending on the type of spine
injury you have sustained.
If your injury is not acute, you will likely go through a course of conservative care:
- Non-inflammatory and pain medication
- Physical therapy
- Epidural injections
- Tens machine
- Nerve ablation
In more severe cases, prompt surgery is mandatory so that the nerves will
not be permanently damaged. In other cases, surgery is a lifestyle decision.
If a person feels that their pain and disability will greatly interfere
with their normal life activities, they may decide to pursue this option.
When spinal cord injuries become extremely disruptive, more extreme medical
measures may be required.
