Spinal Cord Injury


Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal injuries can have profound effects on mobility, sensation, and overall quality of life. Physiotherapy is a key part of rehabilitation after SCI focusing on maximising physical function, promoting independence, and enhancing quality of life.

Spinal cord injury occurs when there is damage to the spinal cord, resulting in a loss of sensation and motor function below the level of injury. This can lead to paralysis, loss of sensation, and a range of secondary complications, including muscle weakness, spasticity, and impaired bladder and bowel function. The severity and extent of impairment depend on the level and extent of the spinal cord damage. A complete SCI results in total paralysis and loss of sensation below the level of the injury, however the majority of people who are affected by SCI are defined and incomplete SCI so there is some sparing of motor or sensory function which can be built upon.

At Neurobility we understand the complexities of SCI rehabilitation and our expert team of physiotherapists and physiotherapy assistants create personalised treatment plans tailored to each individual’s unique needs and goals so that people can regain independence and make the most of their abilities.

Complete SCI treatment needs to focus on maximising the ability to function and do daily tasks through learning techniques to compensate for body parts which are paralysed. While Incomplete SCI rehabilitation aims to make sure that spared activity is enhanced and not lost to allow maximum functioning of the body. We will do a careful assessment to determine potential recovery and where compensation is needed.
