Spinal Injuries - Why Aftercare Is
So Important to Your Recovery
Spinal injuries can devastate not just the lives of the victims, but those of family and
close friends too. Knowing that a previously active and healthy individual is going to
have to go through a prolonged period of adjustment and complete lifestyle change
can be difficult to come to terms with. These traumatic feelings don't go away after a
couple of weeks or months, because the nature of spinal injuries means that the
effects are often permanent. But it's not all doom and gloom, and patients with spinal
injuries can go on to lead rich and fulfilling lives. However, in order to be able to do
that, it's not just the immediate care that has to be effective, but the long-term
One step at a time...
Recovering from a spinal injury is a slow process, and indeed the effects of a serious
injury to the spine can last for the rest of your life. The important thing is to take it
one step at a time and realise that miracle cures are unlikely to happen overnight.
However in time the body does mend itself to a certain degree and victims of spinal
injuries find that they quickly adapt to their new situation. Mobility may be restricted
to a wheelchair, but this is not a reason to believe that your life is 'over.' We've all
seen the inspirational stories of servicemen and women injured in the line of duty
and their remarkable achievements, even with the huge obstacle of a spinal injury
claim to contend with. So the first hurdle to overcome in the long road to recovery is
to banish the belief that a spinal injury reduces your quality of life.
You can conclude from this that many of the hurdles you'll face are psychological as
well as physical, and this is where good quality aftercare can make a huge difference
to your recovery. The right aftercare can help victims of spine injuries overcome the
fear and depression that often results from the initial diagnosis. The support of
family and friends is vital, but so too is the right aftercare.
