The Spinal Cord Injury and Disease rehabilitation program focuses on improving both function and quality of life for individuals who have experienced traumatic or non-traumatic spinal cord injuries; as well as spinal cord injury disease, including adults with spina bifida and multiple sclerosis.  We also offer support and assistance to your primary care provider.

  We focus on maximizing  function and quality of life, through education, and by managing such aspects of injury/disease as:  

  • Neurogenic bladder
  • Neurogenic bowel
  • Neurogenic skin
  • Neuropathic pain
  • Spasticity
  • Respiratory issues
  • Depression
  • Sexuality/reproduction
  • Autonomic dysreflexia
  • Mobility, equipment and training

Throughout the continuum of care, our rehabilitation team includes:  

  • Fellowship-trained physician in spinal cord injury medicine
  • Spinal cord injury nurse and coordinator
  • Physical and occupational therapists
  • Speech and language pathologist
  • Rehabilitation psychologist
  • Social worker
  • Wheelchair experts

  When necessary for your care, we will also involve such specialists as urologists, pulmonologists, plastic and spine surgeons, and wound care nurses.   The entire team of specialists will care for you throughout your hospital stay; then during inpatient rehabilitation as well as outpatient care at our Spine Center clinics; and thus we look forward to building lifelong relationships.
