Rehabilitation of spinal cord injury
Patients with new spinal cord injuries have unique challenges that are best addressed in an inpatient rehabilitation setting. The patient’s functional goals should be based on their level of injury. There are multiple medical issues the physician should evaluate and patients should familiarize themselves with, including pain, spasticity, neurogenic bowel or bladder, pressure injuries, autonomic dysreflexia, and pulmonary compromise.
