A spinal cord injury is a condition that disrupts the function of the spinal cord. These disorders may be partial or complete, permanent or transient. Symptoms depend on the level of spinal cord damage. These injuries affect most often young, fit, active people who become dependent on others’ help overnight. In most cases, the wheelchair becomes an integral part of the patient’s life. The aim of intensive neurorehabilitation is learning by the patient self dependency as well as his return to society.
Thanks to individual physiotherapy, therapy with the use of rehabilitation robots and physical treatments, the patient learns to use a wheelchair on his own, perform everyday activities, learns techniques that facilitate the life of a wheelchair user. He also uses all the positive aspects of dynamic and static upright positioning, and thanks to gait therapy, his body is maintained in good shape so that he may benefit from future medical advances.
