Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal Cord Injury

The objectives of rehabilitation after an individual has sustained an acute spinal cord injury (SCI) include maximizing the patient’s medical, functional, and psychosocial outcomes. Functional outcomes are strongly associated with the neurological level of the individual’s SCI. Providing education to the patient and his/her family is also essential. Rehabilitation should begin as soon as possible after injury in order to optimize outcomes and reduce complications.
