Spinal Cord Injuries
Like other serious injuries, spinal cord injuries can take a long time to heal – and their symptoms can take a long time to surface. At Hagen Rosskopf, we recognize that the full extent of a spinal cord injury such as spinal stenosis (pinched nerve), spinal fracture or any spinal cord injury is not known until weeks or even months after the actual accident occurs.
Often, victims of back spinal cord injuries have no idea of the seriousness of their conditions or how limiting their injuries are until suddenly one day, they can’t turn their heads to the side.
