A new treatment may be in the works for individuals in Ohio and beyond who have received a life-altering injury. Anyone who has suffered a serious spinal cord injury knows that the effects can be everlasting. For those who received the injury while on the job, workers' compensation may have been sought and obtained, but for many, no amount of money can replace the abilities they lost when they were injured.
When a worker is injured on the job, it can prevent them from earning badly needed wages from their job. When a worker suffers a spinal cord injury, the consequences are extremely serious. A spinal cord injury can cause partial or complete paralysis. New research presented at November's Society for Neuroscience meeting gives hope that those who have been paralyzed in an accident may be able to walk again.
