Rehabilitation and quality of life for spine injury patients

October 04, 2012

There have been a number of positive results from a new type of therapy known as locomotor training. Locomotor training involves a series of exercises and sensors the repetitively sends sensory information to the legs and spine for individuals that have suffered spinal cord injuries.

This is just some of the research going on concerning spinal cord injuries, and such research raises hope that innovative rehabilitation treatments will lead to vastly improved lives for victims of spinal injuries. Certain rehabilitative treatment has also led to less expense due to not having to purchase as much at-home equipment because rehabilitation has led to increased functioning of the individual.

For New Jersey individuals that have suffered spinal cord injuries, any increase of functionality will in the long run be to the benefit of caregivers and the individual that has been injured. Individuals receiving such therapy will over time cost society less because they will be more able to function, take care of themselves and even seek employment.

The current cost of spinal cord injuries is often prohibitive as spinal cord injuries are often irreversible, and the onset of such injuries will likely lead to a requirement for a lifetime of care. Continued research and improved therapy may substantially reduce such costs.

Unfortunately, we are not there yet. It will be a number of years before we will see such a reduction of costs. Though such therapies may in the long run reduce costs, someone still needs to pay for this therapy – and this is why clients and attorneys need to continue seeking compensation from negligent parties when such injuries occur.
