Spinal Cord Injury Care

An injury or damage to the spinal cord can result in impairments to the strength, feeling and mobility of the body parts that sit below the location of the injury.

Spinal cord injuries can cause changes to physical ability, emotional wellbeing and challenges within social settings

Sonderwell sees you. We see that life might have changed, but we’re here to support you on this journey of rehabilitation, whilst enabling independence.

A spinal cord is a long structure in your back, running the length of your brainstem to your lower back. It’s a tightly packed tube of nerves which transmits signals to the brain and the rest of your body. An injury to the spinal cord disrupts this transmission and therefore a varying degree of bodily functions.

Typically, spinal cord injuries can result in:

  • A physical disability
  • Changes in motor function
  • Loss of muscle movement
  • Alterations to sensory function
  • Loss of stamina

Spinal cord injuries are often determined by one of the following categories

Complete spinal cord injury

permanently damaged part of the spinal cord with complete loss or impairment of motor and sensory functions.

Incomplete spinal cord injury

partial impairment of the bodily functions, retaining levels of movement
