Spinal Cord Injury

What is a Spinal Cord Injury?

Your brain and spinal cord are responsible for controlling your bodily functions. The spinal cord communicates messages to and from the brain and to all parts of the body- muscles, organs and skin.

If the spinal cord is damaged, some of the messages or impulses may be interrupted which can lead to partial or complete loss of movement or sensation in your body below the level of the injury. Spinal cord injury can be divided into 2 types of injury:

  • Complete-causes permanent damage to the area of the spinal cord that is affected therefore there will be no function below the level of the injury.
  • Incomplete-refers to partial damage of the spinal cord. The ability to move and sensation (feeling) depends on the severity of the injury

How Does Neurotherapy Treatment Work?

Neurotherapy Process

We hold a brief conversation with you about what problems you struggle with and how you need help

We capture your personal details, discuss the costs and timings and arrange an appointment

During your first appointment, you share your goals with us and we conduct a physical assessment

We work with you to build a personalised treatment plan, during a scheduled period of intervention

We may prescribe some exercises to help you to address weakness, move more efficiently and improve your quality of life

We regularly review your progress and adjust your goals as you make improvements
