Recovering from a Neck Fusion? Don’t Let Your Expenses Interfere with Your Recovery

April 10, 2017, on Settlement Loans |

If you were injured in an accident and received an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF), your focus needs to be on your recovery. While this procedure has become a fairly routine form of treatment for accident victims with neck injuries, the recovery process can take anywhere from weeks to months, with doctors frequently advising patients to limit their physical activity for up to a year. This, of course, assumes that the entire recovery process goes according to plan.

To give yourself the best chance at a speedy recovery after a neck fusion, you need to follow your doctor’s advice. In most cases, this means rest followed by physical therapy. If you are concerned about how you will pay your bills if you miss time from work, or how you will cover the costs of your treatment, your best option may be to obtain a settlement loan*.

Settlement Loans for Neck Fusions

When patients do not allow their neck fusions to fully heal, the consequences can extend far beyond short-term financial strain. Returning to work too soon after a neck fusion or failing to fully rehabilitate the neck, vocal cords and surrounding muscles and tissue can lead to complications such as:

  • Degeneration of the spine above or below the fusion.
  • Failure of the screws and plates used to stabilize the spine during the neck fusion surgery.
  • Fusion failure which may result in the need for additional surgery.
  • Hoarseness and difficulty swallowing that require treatment by an ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist.
  • Nerve damage and persistent pain if the neck is not allowed to heal properly before being subjected to physical stress.

How can a settlement loan help? The answer is simple: When you do not have to worry about how you will pay your bills, you can devote your time and attention to your recovery. Not only can a settlement loan serve as wage replacement while you are unable to work; but, if your medical bills are more than you can pay while your lawsuit is pending, you can use your settlement loan to fund your physical recovery until you win the compensation you deserve.

While commonly referred to as “settlement loans,” you do not actually have to repay the money you receive from Injury Funds Now. Obtaining the money you need to recover from your neck fusion is safe and easy. Whether your doctor has recommended weeks or months of rest and rehabilitation, you can apply for a settlement loan that is custom-tailored to your personal financial needs.
