Enable Exercise Offers Spinal Injury Physiotherapy

 

Enable Exercise is dedicated to helping clients rebuild their independence, increase functional capacity, and improve their quality of life with spinal injury physiotherapy. Spinal injuries can have devastating effects on your mobility. With physiotherapy, you can rebuild strength and, depending on your injury, potentially even stimulate or regain movement in certain areas. Our friendly and professional staff is here to help with a program tailor-made for your diagnosis and personal goals.

Signs You Should Consider Investing in Physiotherapy for a Spinal Cord Injury

The spectrum of spinal cord injuries is broad, and the types of physiotherapy that can help vary greatly depending on the severity and location of your injury. Every person who experiences a spinal cord injury has unique personal goals in mind when they begin physiotherapy. For all these reasons, we tailor our goals to our clients.

Here are a few of the different types of exercises and the signs that you can benefit from them.

  • Mobility issues after a spinal cord injury can limit the types of physical activities that you can participate in, and with less physical activity in your life, you can gain weight and weaken your heart. Aerobic exercises for people with quadriplegia and paraplegia can help keep you in shape while strength training can help keep your muscles from shrinking and weakening.

  • Spinal cord injuries can result in muscle spasticity, which is when your muscles remain constricted. Regular stretching can help to expand your range of movement and result in less pain.

  • Rebuilding your independence can be vitally important as you live with a spinal cord injury. Our team can help you to review and revise your current limitations with functional goals that you can use in your day-to-day life during your recovery.

Statistics on Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Physiotherapy from Enable Exercise You Should Know

 

Most people do not give much thought to spinal cord injuries until either they or one of their loved ones experiences one. A few vital statistics about these injuries:

  • In Australia, roughly 12,000 people live with a spinal cord injury with around 350 to 400 new injuries occurring each year.

  • Of those spinal cord injuries, 35% result in complete quadriplegia or paraplegia while the rest result in incomplete injuries with some nerve functions still in operation.

  • Vehicle accidents are the most common cause of spinal cord injuries in Australia.
