Maximising Independence with Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation

Spinal Injury | Transverse Myelitis | Spinal Stroke | Tumor

Our spinal cord injury service gives clients access to highly experienced physiotherapists, physiotherapy assistants and personal trainers who can provide evidence-based treatments incorporating leading technology to assist in their rehabilitation after a spinal cord injury or illness. 

From intensive daily rehabilitation, to attending a group exercise class, access to our comprehensive and tailored services can support ongoing rehabilitation and daily activities.

How PhysioFunction can help with Spinal Cord Injury

Our Spinal Service is split into two main pathways:

The Intensive Rehabilitation Programme

Designed to provide approx. 4 hours of daily rehabilitation, available Monday – Friday. This comprises hands-on physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, wheelchair skills training, strength and conditioning exercises, nutritional coaching and advanced rehabilitation technology.

The mechanism of Neuroplasticity can allow the brain, spinal cord and body to reconnect and rewire to find other ways of completing activities. The key to enhancing Neuroplasticity is high repetition, task specific practice. This is what our intensive rehabilitation program provides.

Discharge Continuity Programme

Our Discharge Continuity Programme has been constructed to provide access to ongoing rehabilitation as the client settles back in at home after discharge from hospital/specialist spinal unit.

Leaving hospital can seem daunting after a spinal cord injury or illness and finding the confidence and energy to keep up on the rehabilitation received in hospital can be challenging. Our discharge continuity program can assist with this transition and allow continued rehabilitation.

More than a rehabilitation centre - PhysioFunction offers a community.

PhysioFunction offers more than just a rehabilitation centre, it offers a community. Our highly trained and specialist Neurological and Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists, Sports Therapists, Physiotherapy Assistants, Personal Trainers and Occupational Therapists work hand in hand with all our clients and their families to achieve and maintain the best outcomes possible.

The therapy provided by PhysioFunction uses a wealth of world leading rehabilitation technologies, including three different robotic exoskeletons, multiple FES systems, body-weight supported walking systems and off-site access to a hydrotherapy pool.

So, whatever the level of injury, we have a plethora of treatment tools to aid improving cardiovascular function, strengthen weakened muscles, manage weight and always aiming for the restoration of physical functions where possible.
