Spinal Cord Injury Therapy
Intensive Physical Therapy Institute, LLC Has Spinal Cord Injury Therapy
Spinal cord injury disrupts the conduction of the nerves that originate from that area, affecting sensory and motor function. It can limit the ability to feel and perform function in different parts of the body, depending on the segment of the spinal cord that has been involved. Spinal cord injury can be classified as paraplegia (paralysis of both limbs), hemiplegia (paralysis of one side of the body), and quadriplegia (paralysis of the trunk and four limbs). The injury can be classified as congenital or acquired:
Congenital: The onset of the condition is from birth: spina bifida, tumors, etc.
Traumatic: Your child was born with no problems, but the spine has been affected due to trauma during recreational activity, accident, or disease.
Our therapy will maximize the available function for your child to cope with the demands of life and will prevent complications that might develop if left untreated, like contractures and osteoporosis. To learn more about our spinal cord injury therapy, contact us today.
