Spinal Cord Injuries

Physiotherapy can help spinal cord-injury patients with cramping muscles as passive moment can help stretch the muscles.

Your condition will depend on the severity and type of spinal cord injury suffered, such as incomplete or complete. You may be suffering from muscle weakness or paralysis, loss of balance and mobility, loss of your functional movement, poor posture, and difficulty in breathing.

A treatment programme is formulated following a thorough physical assessment which might include:

  • Stretching activities to maintain muscle and tendon length and reduce or keep muscle spasms/spasticity to a minimum
  • Flexibility and strengthening exercises for the whole body
  • Breathing exercises to maximise lung function and prevent chest infection
  • Balance and posture exercises which can help to reduce pain associated with poor posture and balance impairment
  • Functional activities to improve fundamental movement patterns
