If you ever suffered from a spinal cord injury, you know it can be intensely painful or, even worse, you may not feel any pain because you suffered total or partial paralysis. Sadly, once damage is done to the spinal cord, the damage is permanent. Our South Dakota personal injury attorneys at Zimmer, Duncan and Cole, LLP, not only want you to be compensated for your injuries, but we also are here to help ensure you receive proper treatment to help relieve your pain and improve nerve function. Fortunately, some treatments are available that can assist in this process.

Spinal cord injuries include a wide range of injuries that impact your back. The Mayo Clinic has indicated that the following are treatment options for spinal cord injuries:

  • Surgery: Needed to stabilize the spine, remove bits of bone fragments, or for herniated discs
  • Immobilization: To keep your spine straight and in proper alignment
  • Medications: To help alleviate the pain
  • Rehabilitation: Physical therapy, occupational therapy, dietician, and even a social worker will work with you throughout your recovery phase

Depending on the severity of your injury, even with these treatments you may require ongoing care. Our personal injury lawyers from South Dakota encourage you to discuss these treatment options with your surgeons and team of medical professionals.
