Spinal Cord Injuries

Introduction to Spinal Cord Injuries

A spinal cord injury (SCI) is usually a result of trauma to the spine. This trauma causes a complete or incomplete tear of the spinal cord leading to loss of sensation and muscle power below the level of the injury. Spinal cord damage can also be due to other causes such as tumours and spina bifida.

The aims of physiotherapy treatment will differ in relation to the level of your spinal cord injury. Physiotherapy can help you reach and maintain your maximum physical potential and help in the management of other aspects of your condition.

The physiotherapists at Manchester Neuro Physio understand that a spinal cord injury is a life changing event and affects both you and those around you. We are able to provide home, clinic and specialist gymnasium-based physiotherapy appointments. Hydrotherapy treatment is also available.
