Here are the treatment stages you should be aware of for a spinal cord injury.

Acute stage

  • Making sure you can breathe. Be aware that spinal injuries may lead to trouble breathing, and that this will be your doctors’ first priority.
  • Immobilisation. Stopping your spine from moving will help to prevent any further injury or complications. You may be placed in a body harness, or use a cervical neck collar (this may also be used for a serious whiplash injury in Church Stretton)
  • Medication. This will help to stop the pain that you are experiencing, as well as helping with any swelling or inflammation, helping you to recover more quickly from your injury.
  • Surgery. This is one of the more extreme measures, which will need to be used if your injury is severe. Your doctor will talk you through what is going to happen and how it will help you though.

Ongoing treatment

After your initial injury has been dealt with, it may still take a long time for you to get back to ‘normal’. During this time your doctor will provide you with ongoing care to make the process as easy on you as possible.

  • Medication. You may be given medication to take home with you that will continue to help with the pain and inflammation.
  • Physiotherapy. Although this may be painful it is necessary to help you to regain full mobility.
  • Psychiatric care. This helps you to deal with the emotions surrounding your injury and accident.
