A spinal injury after a Lake Charles accident is unfortunately a common injury. The impact of one car hitting your vehicle can put an enormous force on the delicate bone structure in your spine. When this happens, you may suffer immense pain, lose feeling in some parts of your body, or become paralyzed.

A spinal injury can be difficult to treat. Unlike other broken bones, it is more difficult to immobilize or put in a cast. Instead, there are various types of therapies you can go to for help getting your life back to normal again as quickly as possible.

Here are four of the most common types of therapy you may have to go through after a Lake Charles spinal cord injury:

  • Occupational therapy. In severe spinal cord injuries you may not be able to perform daily functions—such as brushing your teeth or dressing yourself—without assistance. An occupational therapist will work with you to help you become as independent as possible.
  • Physical therapy. Physical therapy will help you regain your balance, strength, and coordination so you can move more naturally again.
  • Pain management. In this type of treatment you will see a physiatrist to help you cope with lingering pain that comes as a result of your spinal cord injury.
  • Rehabilitation. For most spinal cord injuries, you may need rehabilitation to help you become fully independent again as your injury slowly heal.

There is a lot to think about when you have a spinal cord injury. Lake Charles spinal injury lawyer Greg Marceaux at Marceaux Law Firm can help you understand your treatment options, and what you can expect while you undergo treatment so that you can increase your chances at making a full and fast recovery.
