Life After Spinal Injuries
Spinal injuries are life changing. With varied symptoms and outcomes, these conditions demand intelligent, nuanced treatment. At PhysioFitness, our specialists work tirelessly to ensure that patients can access superior injury management resources.
Understanding Spinal Injuries
Spinal cord injuries are often caused by traumatic harm to the spine that results in the fracturing or dislocation of vertebrae. Unlike similar injuries in other areas of the body, however, spinal damage may involve widespread or permanent symptoms. Common problems can include:
- Impaired muscle or organ function,
- Persistent pain,
- Partial or complete paralysis,
- Loss of sensation, or
- Lasting weakness.
- The Recovery Process
The wide range of spinal injury outcomes means that each situation requires a custom treatment regimen. Sometimes, surgical intervention can be used to correct the injury itself, but it’s not a cure-all solution. Patients commonly have to participate in continuing physical therapy in order to regain their usual levels of functionality and health.
Our compassionate staff members are fully dedicated to helping you manage your symptoms through treatments such as:
- Mobility training and exercise regimens,
- Supportive counseling and positive feedback,
- Skill-building activities, and
- Nerve and muscle stimulation.
