Patients with spinal cord injuries have special rehabilitation needs. Education regarding the care of their skin, bladder and bowel is required. Coordination of physical therapy to attain maximum independence, prescription of equipment and development of a life care plan are among the services offered by our physicians and health care professionals on the physical medicine and rehabilitation team. Long term follow-up care in our Spinal Cord Injury Clinic can help minimize complications.
The focus of the Spinal Cord Injury Clinic is evaluation and care, including therapy recommendations and pharmacological management, for patients with paraplegia, tetraplegia and other spinal cord injury syndromes.
