Recovery from an incomplete spinal cord injury can continue for years and neurological rehabilitation may be beneficial for a long period following the onset of the injury. Ongoing specialist neurological physiotherapy could maximise your recovery and help you to achieve optimal functioning.
We can help you with your walking, balance and posture, in order to maintain flexibility and to prevent osteoporosis and contractures, through the use of standing programmes.
Working with you, we will provide advice and create a tailored home exercise programme, whilst also helping you to prevent postural problems, maintain respiratory function, and reduce the risk of developing chest infections and muscle spasms, together with associated discomfort. To support this, we will also assess the most effective equipment and aids, tailored to your individual requirements.
Although you may be successfully managing your spinal cord injury, the continuing occasional input of a skilled neurological physiotherapist can help progress towards movement goals such as sports, stairs and transfers.
