Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation

At The Royal Buckinghamshire Hospital each client is treated as an individual and receives and assessment to ensure that any programme is designed specifically for their needs. This may involve: improving the quality of movement to maximise independence and recovery following a stroke or head injury; top up or the development of skill following spinal cord injury; or maintaining movements, joint range and posture in more progressive conditions.

Neurological problems are often complex and may benefit from an assessment by an inter-disciplinary team of specialist consultants, nurses, occupational therapists as well as physiotherapists. This assessment considers the management of the whole person including an assessment of functional independence. 

We also provide support, education and personal community integration plans to enable you to manage your needs more effectively

A Multi-Disciplinary Team

Patients are admitted under the care of one of our specialist consultants. A multi-disciplinary team, with specialist expertise in rehabilitation, will then co-ordinate the care of the patient. Every patient also has a named key worker, who is the principal liaison for the patient, family and the care team.
