Spinal cord injury treatments are usually not something that you can recover from easily or quickly. It takes time to get better, which is why our firm’s San Diego spinal cord injury attorneys are happy to see that U2 lead-singer Bono is taking some time to recuperate after his spinal cord injury surgery.
According to the Huffington Post and the band’s manager, Bono is in a Munich hospital after hurting himself during preparation for the group’s “360-Degrees” tour. At the moment, the type of spinal cord injury Bono sustained is unknown, but it appears as though he’ll make a full recovery.
U2’s front man, Bono, is undergoing surgery for his spinal cord injury.
Bono, whose real name Paul Hewson, is receiving spinal cord injury treatment from a doctor and neurosurgeon in Germany. The U2 show scheduled for June 3rd in Salt Lake City has been postponed in order to let the 50-year-old rocker have some time before getting back on his feet.
A spinal cord injury is serious at any age, but as you get older, the chances of becoming paralyzed are greatly increased. Your body might not be able to withstand a fall or massive hit to the back like it would during your younger days. At any age, you want to take necessary precautions to avoid a spinal cord injury at all costs.
Most of the time, we don’t think about performers hurting themselves while entertaining us, but they can slip and fall or get hit with a piece of equipment in the blink of an eye. A good showman makes sure everyone is safe before trying to impress their audience. Not to say that Bono acted recklessly, but hopefully in the future he’ll make sure he’s not in a position to get hurt either on or off-stage.
In an statement on U2’s website, the manager stated everyone in the band hopes things get resolved quickly. Our firm’s spinal cord injury attorneys feel the same way and wish to see Bono back to exciting crowds around the world once his spinal cord is back to normal.
