Once the spinal cord has been injured there is no way to reverse the damage, but in the meantime treatment focuses on preventing further injury.
After the initial injury doctors turn their attention to preventing secondary problems that may arise. In the early stages of recovery a rehabilitation team will work with the patient. The therapy team members include a physical therapist, occupational therapist, rehabilitation nurse, rehabilitation psychologist, social worker, dietician, recreation therapist and a doctor who specializes in physical medicine.
