Your journey to recovery, depending on the severity of your injury, may begin at the Restore Hospital. Restore Hospital is physiotherapy and rehabilitation center staffed with a multidisciplinary rehabilitation specialist where you will have access to evidenced based rehabilitation services specifically designed for spinal cord injuries.
Restore Hospital’s spinal cord injury rehabilitation team treats people with all causes of traumatic or non-trauma spinal cord injuries, including spinal cord tumors, Guillain-Barre syndrome, spinal cord infections, transverse myelitis, multiple sclerosis, myelopathies.
As a result of the injury, the functions performed by the spinal cord are interrupted at the level below the injury of the injury site. Whether complete or incomplete, SCI rehabilitation is a long process that requires patience and motivation of the patient and relatives. Early rehabilitation is important to prevent joint contractures and the loss of muscle strength, conservation of bone density, and to ensure normal functioning of the respiratory and digestive system. An interdisciplinary approach is essential in rehabilitation in SCI, as in the other types of rehabilitation
Following a stay at the Restore Hospital your therapists will assist in the transition to outpatient care at the Restore to continue the recovery process.
