If you think you have sustained injury to your spinal cord, seek medical attention immediately. While there is no way to reverse damage to the spinal cord, urgent medical attention can minimize the effects of head and neck trauma, so the individual is not further injured. Remaining immobile can stabilize the spine and reduce the risk of further injury. Certain medications given within hours of initial injury can reduce damage to nerve cells and decrease inflammation and pressure at the site of injury.

Spinal cord injuries are very serious. If you become injured in an accident due to another's negligence, you may have a personal injury claim.
