Spinal Cord Injury Program
Individualized Rehabilitation Services
After a traumatic injury to the spine, physical therapy is almost always a necessity in order for patients to make significant progress in their recovery. Anyone that has sustained one of these injuries knows that the first few weeks can be some of the most difficult. When experiencing the pain and undergoing initial treatment, it can be hard to see how things can improve, but that’s exactly what Vibra Healthcare’s spinal cord team can help you understand.
As experienced and knowledgeable medical professionals, our team is adept at analyzing a patient’s condition and coming up with realistic goals for their recovery. We have helped numerous spine injury victims achieve more than they believed was possible, and we strive to bring that same exceptional level of care to each and every patient.
Taking it Step By Step
We are exceedingly careful in how we present end results to our patients. Even if we can predict an end goal, it cannot be achieved without the active involvement of patients and their loved ones. Painting a picture of the endgame can often be overwhelming to patients who are dealing with severe functional limitations. Our strategy is to provide them with smaller, more immediately attainable goals that allow them to realize the progress they are making and push themselves to new heights. A patient’s progress influences our own analysis of what they can achieve, until eventually a final end goal is determined.
Some of the goals in the spinal injury program include:
Managing pain and discomfort
Improving range of motion and flexibility
Restoring function for day-to-day tasks
Learning new ways to accomplish tasks despite physical limitations
Overcoming stress and depression
Progress of any kind, no matter how small it may seem, is a tremendous achievement after a spinal cord injury. Our trusted staff helps patients keep their focus on what they’ll be able to do next instead of what they can’t do.
Communal Support Makes a Difference
We strongly encourage close friends and loved ones to participate in the patient’s rehabilitation. Having a support system makes a significant difference in the patient’s morale and motivation to continue treatment. Our team can also teach you ways you can help the patient’s recovery at home.
Positivity is important in these situations. As people who witness firsthand the medical obstacles people overcome, we at Vibra Healthcare can say with full confidence that positivity with realistic expectations is by no means trivial or naïve. It has the power to change lives.
