Description

The Cone Health Inpatient Rehabilitation Center provides comprehensive rehabilitation services to individuals who have experienced spinal cord injury. The rehabilitation physician and team members work with patients and families to create a personal treatment plan to help each patient regain as much independence as possible, with the goal of returning to home and the community.

Our Cone Health Inpatient Rehabilitation Center provides our patients with spinal cord injuries with comprehensive rehabilitation services. Depending on the type and location of the injury, our rehabilitation program may teach our patients how to manage their own care or new ways to accomplish daily activities.

We consider each patient’s unique situation and may recommend and provide training for adaptive equipment and assistive technology to help increase independence and function at home. Also, we teach our patients and their caregivers how to maintain their health and prevent future complications that may occur after a spinal cord injury.

Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injury can result in paralysis of the muscles used for breathing; paralysis and/or loss of feeling in all or some of the trunk, arms, and legs; weakness; numbness; loss of bowel and bladder control; and numerous secondary conditions including respiratory problems, pressure sores, and sometimes fatal spikes in blood pressure. Approximately 12,000 new spinal cord injuries occur in the U.S. each year. A majority of injuries occur from motor vehicle accidents, falls, work-related accidents, sports injuries, and penetrations such as stab or gunshot wounds.
