Spinal Injury Care

Our expertly trained Healthcare Assistants provide specialist one to one support for people with spinal injuries at home. They receive extra training and support from our clinical lead nurses who have the level of skill and experience to support all variations of spinal injuries. Long and short term care is available which can flex depending on the rehabilitation period required.

There are an estimated 50,000 people in the UK living with a spinal cord injury and each year approximately 2,500 people are newly injured

The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves and tissue, which extends from the brain down the length of your back. The bones called vertebrae, which make up the spine, protect it.

The spinal cord services as the two-way pathway between the brain and the body. Injury and trauma to this can affect the body’s functions and partial or complete loss of movement.

Spinal injuries whether through trauma or existing conditions are life-changing. A spinal cord injury can happen to anyone at any time, and no one is prepared for how it will change his or her life.
