Spinal cord injury

Physiotherapy for Spinal Cord Injury

The spinal cord is part of the central nervous system and it allows information to be transferred between the body and the brain. This enables the brain to control all of the body's functions and adjust them as needed. When the spinal cord becomes injured usually through trauma this process is impaired causing many different problems. Physiotherapy aims to help find ways to adapt to these changes and improve functional ability and independence.

The level and amount of damage caused to the spinal cord will change the severity and impact that the injury has on the individual's life. Each person who suffers a spinal cord injury will therefore have varying symptoms. At Leeds Physiotherapy our team of specialist neurological physiotherapists are experts in assessing all types of spinal cord injury. Their patient centred approach ensures that treatments will be designed around your needs and goals. Some of the more common areas treated by our physiotherapists are:

Iqbal, Leeds

"My physio explained what had happened, gave me a clear timetable for my recovery and gave me exercises designed to get me back to work as soon as possible."

Steve, Osmondthorpe

"My wife can now walk around the house with a stick, can use the stairs and is more able to do things herself. We feel it has been a great help as I don’t think I could have coped alone."
