Catastrophic injuries affect victims for the rest of their lives. Devastating injuries such as multiple bone fractures, traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries are usually referred to as catastrophic injuries because their effects on the victim are life-long. Injured victims can, however, improve their physical abilities and learn to cope with their new limitations through physical therapy and other rehabilitative techniques. This type of treatment is not always covered by insurance and the bills can add up quickly.
Broken bones are just one type of catastrophic injury that requires extensive physical therapy treatment. Through physical activities, injured victims may regain some of their strength and mobility. Regrettably, it is common for catastrophic bone fractures to never fully heal. But with extended physical therapy sessions it may be possible to regain the ability to function in the workplace or even participate in physical activities. Rehabilitation is particularly important for brain injury victims. Many catastrophic head injury victims lose the ability to move parts of their body. Victims sometimes have to relearn how to perform daily functions such as dressing, bathing or feeding themselves. Spinal cord damage victims often require rehabilitation therapy to work on coping with their new disabilities.
Victims of paralysis, for example, may never regain the ability to move their limbs, but physical therapy can help them understand what they are capable of doing. Unfortunately, this type of treatment is expensive and victims are often left wondering how to cover the costs.
