Physical and Occupational Therapy for Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries often cause people to develop significant losses in mobility, resulting in the need for physical therapy, which often helps a victim regain some of their mobility and strength. Physical and occupational therapy can allow a person to make great strides in gaining independence and feeling more like they did prior to the spinal cord injury. Depending on the severity of a person’s injury, their therapy could vary slightly from others’.

The Therapy Process for Spinal Cord Injuries

Getting a person more confident in their motor abilities is crucial as quickly as possible after sustaining spinal cord injuries. Not only does this prevent a person from permanently losing certain abilities, but it often helps to build confidence that speeds the recovery process. Physical and occupational therapy for spinal cord injuries includes the following steps:

  • Establishing basic coping strategies immediately after a patient’s condition is stable
  • After learning how to handle basic needs, injured individuals will work on range of movement, mobility, and strength to the best of their ability
  • Eventually, bed transfer, shower or bath transfer, getting in and out of vehicles, and other crucial steps towards independence may be worked on
  • Throughout therapy, individuals learn how to use assistance devices, such as wheelchairs

While these parts of the physical therapy process may be similar from patient to patient, the treatment that a person receives will largely depend on their situation and capabilities.
