Understanding Spinal Cord Injuries and the Power of Physical Therapy
Discover how BUSINESS NAME can help you navigate the challenges of spinal cord injuries and restore your quality of life.
A Brief Overview of Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries (SCIs) result from damage to the spinal cord, disrupting the communication between the brain and the body. They can be classified into two main categories: complete injuries, where there is a total loss of function below the level of injury, and incomplete injuries, where some degree of function is retained.

Common causes of spinal cord injuries include motor vehicle accidents, falls, sports injuries, and acts of violence.
How Spinal Cord Injuries Impact Your Daily Life

The effects of spinal cord injuries can be profound and life-altering. Depending on the severity and location of the injury, individuals may experience varying degrees of paralysis, loss of sensation, difficulty with bladder and bowel control, and chronic pain. These physical challenges can significantly impact daily life, often requiring adjustments to one’s home, work, and social environments.
