Spinal cord injuries can occur at any level of the spinal cord, and the level of the injury dictates its impact on your body’s functioning. Once the initial injury has healed, effective rehabilitation can help you learn skills to live independently with any remaining disability.
At Sheltering Arms, we offer a wide variety of services to help you live a full, productive life following a spinal cord injury. A physical therapist can help you regain muscle strength and flexibility, while an occupational therapist will work with you on essential activities, such as grooming, bathing, dressing and using the bathroom. A speech-language pathologist will evaluate your abilities to express yourself and understand others. Speech-language pathology can also address swallowing issues.
Medical psychology often plays an essential role in the rehabilitation process following a spinal cord injury and can help with behavior and emotional adjustment. In the hospital setting, physicians, nurses and case managers oversee the rehabilitation process, ensuring medical stability and coordinated care, and making recommendations for next steps following inpatient rehabilitation.
