How can my healthcare team help with my spinal cord injury?

You should have your own healthcare team to help with your spinal cord injury. It's important to tell them about any problems you're having. They're there to help you cope with your injury and to teach you ways of taking care of yourself. Your team will give you medicines if you have pain, and offer treatments to help with sweating, headaches, and feeling faint. Your team will also advise you on your diet so you stay as healthy as possible, and they'll give you tips for when you get too hot or too cold.
