Devastating Injuries To The Brain And Spinal Cord

Spinal cord and brain injuries have permanent impacts on your quality of life and, in some cases, ability to live independently. Not only do they call for continued medical attention, but paralysis in connection to the spinal cord trauma also creates risks for additional health issues. You may lose the ability to move muscles and feel sensations in the parts of your body below the site of the injury.

Prompt treatment for your injuries is the best chance for recovery of function. Injuries including a broken back, spinal fracture, herniated disk, spinal cord compression, paralysis, paraplegia, quadriplegia and fractured vertebrae usually require costly surgeries, extensive therapy and numerous changes that will affect how you live and work for the rest of your life.
