Spinal Injuries

Spinal Cord injuries encompass any traumatic insult to the spinal cord or nerves at cervical (neck), thoracic (chest), thoracolumbar, lumbar, lumbo-sacral (lower back) or multiple levels which often cause permanent changes in strength, sensation and other body functions below the site of the injury.

Our experience includes:

  • Ventilation and respiratory management, including tracheostomy tubes
  • Oral and enteral nutrition
  • Continence management to include the changing and ongoing care of indwelling catheters, intermittent catherization and bowel management systems
  • Working closely with physiotherapists to reach maximum potential, including hydrotherapy sessions
