People who suffered back injuries might have damaged their spinal cord. They need extra care and need to be more extra careful in doing their daily activities. Medical assistants or nurses must be careful in handling their patients who have spinal cord injury. They must help the patient move their body easily transferring the weight to another. This is to avoid the muscles to freeze and numb.

It is also advisable to have recreational activities where the patients can participate in activities that they can do to help them feel good about themselves and be satisfied. One should also know the schedule when the patients need to go to the toilet. Above all, one must not belittle patients with spinal cord injury but uplift their self-esteem.
