About Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation
People who sustain a spinal cord injury typically need intensive therapy, medical treatment and rehabilitation to adapt to their new lives. These services can be extremely expensive. In fact, the lifetime costs of a spinal cord injury and rehabilitation services can be in excess of a million dollars.
The attorneys of Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, work diligently to see that clients with spinal cord injuries who need rehabilitation services obtain the financial compensation they require. In fact, we have a long record of accomplishment helping people with spinal cord injuries obtain the rehabilitation and treatment they need.
Addressing Today's Needs
Spinal cord injury rehabilitation typically involves a team of medical and rehabilitation specialists, including orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, neurologists, physiatrists, psychologists and various therapists, such as physical and occupational therapists. Together this team develops and implements individualized plans to help patients maximize their potential. The goal is to help people with spinal cord injuries adapt to their new lives and re-integrate them into their families, homes and communities.
Spinal cord rehabilitation may include:
- Exercises to strengthen muscles
- Training in the use of adaptive technologies
- Retraining people in life skills such as feeding and dressing themselves
- Learning coping mechanisms that would allow the person to live as independently as possible
- Physical therapy
- Addressing mental and behavioral health needs
