Can paraplegia be treated? My son was severely injured in a motorcycle crash in Los Angeles and has been diagnosed with this condition.
Surgery may be required to address the spinal cord injury and rehabilitation is typically recommended. In some cases, the medical provider will prescribe medication to control muscle spasms. However, treatment is generally focused on preventing additional complications, instead of treating paraplegia.
Your son’s doctor will take measures to prevent serious complications, such as blood clots, pressure sores (a.k.a. bedsores), low blood pressure and constipation.
If the motorcycle wreck was caused by the other driver’s negligence, you should consult with an experienced Los Angeles motorcycle accident attorney at our office. You can obtain a free consultation by calling (800) 989-6385.
