From the time of injury, the patient undergoes several changes and often relearning how to perform tasks that have been second nature to them since they were infants. After hospitalization and often a rehab stay, it will be time to choose an outpatient physical therapy team. It is vital that you choose a provider skilled and experienced in spinal cord injuries to give you the best chance of recovery.
Types of Spinal Cord Injuries We Treat at Function Better Physical Therapy Mega Center in Yorkville, NY
There are generally two types of spinal cord injuries, complete and incomplete.
- Complete spinal cord injuries typically lose function below the level of the spinal cord involved. In these cases, it is very important to learn compensations for movement and activities of daily living safely.
- An incomplete spinal cord injury can vary in the function that is preserved below the level of the injury. A thorough examination should be included to see which levels may still have innervation. This information should be incorporated into a skilled, specific treatment plan to optimize function. Incomplete injuries can both regain function through recovery and through compensation.
Let us help you through the emotional and physical changes you are going through and help you to a better quality of life.
