Spinal Cord Injuries and Mental Health

A spinal cord injury is life-changing in more ways than the impact on physical health. For many sufferers, losing the ability to perform everyday activities the same as before is only the beginning. Mental health problems are a secondary health concern that can manifest in several ways.

Depression
The limitations that are forced on the sufferer of a spinal cord injury can be hard to reconcile. Pain, discomfort, limited mobility and paralysis are just some of the potential impacts. When a person’s way of life suddenly changes due to injury, it can lead to chronic depression.

Anxiety
Anxiety may stem from memories of the accident that caused a spinal cord injury, or due to physical limitations such as needing assistance when using the bathroom. Without rehabilitation that takes mental health issues into account, many sufferers of spinal cord injuries may struggle to adjust.

Aggressive Behavior
Anger and resentment after a spinal cord injury are not uncommon emotions. The injured individual may experience bouts of frustration that manifest in aggressive behavior. If you or a loved one are being affected by negative thoughts after a spinal cord injury, it may be worth considering contacting an experienced counselor who can help.

Bruce Millar The Millar Law Firm Atlanta, GA

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
