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
