CARING for spinal cord disabilities & injury
Spinal cord disabilities are among the most traumatic that someone can sustain. There are many causes of spinal cord disabilities. Anyone who has a spinal cord disability knows exactly how debilitating it is.
The effects are both physical and mental – preventing independence and limiting physical function. Some of the most frequent complications that our caregivers are trained for include:
- neurogenic bladder and bowel dysfunction
- urinary tract infections, pressure ulcers
- orthostatic hypotension
- deep vein thrombosis
- autonomic dysreflexia
- pulmonary and cardiovascular problems
- depressive disorders
The treatment and rehabilitation process of a spinal cord disability can be long, expensive, and always requires a multidisciplinary approach. Early rehabilitation is important to prevent additional disability and complications.
