Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) can be a debilitating injury usually caused by an accident. The spinal cord, which passes through and is protected by the spine, is the pathway that enables communication between the brain and almost all parts of the body. Depending upon the severity of the injury and where along the spine it occurs, the symptomatic impact will vary from person to person.

In the majority of cases, once initial impact and injury has been assessed and stabilised, a structured reablement programme will allow improvement to mobility, independence and for inpatients, the potential for a quicker return to home.
