SPINAL CORD INJURY REHABILITATION

It is important to be confident about the quality of care you or a loved one will receive from a spinal cord injury rehabilitation provider. Our team at ARC have a dedicated outpatient and home based neuro rehabilitation service for any individual who has sustained an acquired or traumatic spinal cord injury.

Our approach is multi-disciplinary, comprehensive and designed to best facilitate your recovery and improve independence. Your treatment is always tailored and may vary depending on your level of injury and unique needs.

You will typically be assessed by one of our neuro physiotherapists or occupational therapists who will design a rehab program to help you regain your potential. Each program is based on an evidence-based approach to therapy, drawing on a customised mix of hands-on treatment, exercise therapy and rehabilitation technology.

Spinal Cord Rehabilitation Programs

Depending on the level of the spinal cord injury and the degree of damage, you may be experiencing a number of symptoms including muscle weakness or paralysis, spasticity, altered sensation, sexual dysfunction, pain and more. Our holistic approach can help you with the following:

  • Relearning everyday tasks such as walking, transfers and using your arm and hand, with a focus of improving the quality of movement

  • Exercises to build strength and function in paralysed or weak muscles

  • Fitness training to improve your everyday endurance and capacity

  • Balance training to improve standing, dynamic tasks such as walking and reduce the risk of falls

  • Hand and arm therapy to drive everyday independence

  • Assessment and trials for equipment you may need to help you with everyday tasks such as walking aids, specialist seating and modification and aids at home.

  • Establish community based goals and exploring options for community participation and return to activities and sport

Our physiotherapists will work with you to address these symptoms and improve your sitting, standing, walking, arm and hand function or any of your goals. Our occupational therapists can also assess any strategies and equipment needs to optimise independence in your everyday life. We have a dedicated seating clinic for wheelchair prescription & postural improvements that has improved mobility, comfort and safety for many of our clients.

Your treatment typically takes place in our Sydney clinics, in your home or a combination of both depending on your personal circumstances.

Equipment and Rehab Technology

Our Sydney flagship clinic has the latest in equipment and robotics to deliver optimal rehab outcomes in individuals with a spinal cord injury. These technologies in conjunction with therapy from our skilled clinicians are designed to deliver the gold standard of treatment.
