As advised earlier, According to the condition of the patient the next step would be a surgical procedure. the surgery does not come with guarantee, but may prove to be beneficial in this case(quite a lot chances). or just can be managed with therapy and precautions , again depending on present functional state and extent of damage done to spinal cord. Consult Occupational Therapist / neuro-Occupational Theapist, if you are having trouble with the Day- day activities. BUT THE FINAL DECISION STILL DEPENDS UPON CORELATING THE MRI SCANS (IMAGES) and PRESENTATION OF THE PATIENT
Next Steps
If SURGICAL INTERVENTION IS ADVISED , You have to consult Neuro -surgeon or Spine surgeon, or orthopaedic surgeon. (in order of priority), or if possible please upload the images of MRI and RECORD A VIDEO (person needs to get up walk and sit somewhere else and drink a glass of water) AND UPLOAD, and share link, SO that correlation can be made and advised accordingly
Health Tips
Consider it as urgent and don't linger on, visit nearest neurosurgeon, for immediate advise along with the person involved. STAY HEALTHY
