Spinal Cord Injuries
Have You Recently Sustained a Spinal Cord Injury?
Spinal cord injuries can greatly impact your life and result in pain, limitations, and daily hindrances. This is especially true if your spinal cord injury resulted in a Cerebral Vascular Accident (CVA), which is essentially a traumatic brain injury.
Fortunately, our Medford, NY physical therapists are highly trained and experienced in helping patients regain motion, relieve pain, and reclaim life. For more information on how our Medford, NY physical therapy practice can help you recover from a spinal cord injury, contact Evolving Gait Physical Therapy today.
Spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries
It is possible that an injury to the spinal cord could also result in an injury to the brain. This occurs because the central nervous system consists of both the brain and the spinal cord, so an injury to one could affect the other.
While it is undeniably shocking to undergo an injury to both the spinal cord and the brain, our Medford, NY physical therapists are well-equipped to help you find relief from both.
In fact, according to Choose PT, “therapist[s] will work with the patient, family, and other health care providers to develop goals and an individualized treatment plan to address the challenges and functional limitations associated with the injury.”
Our highly trained Medford, NY physical therapists will also prescribe specific gentle exercises, stretches, and modalities to help you increase strength and recover brain function. We will evaluate the severity of the spinal cord injury and the associating brain injury, and we will match you with the best treatment strategies to reduce discomfort, alleviate painful symptoms, and improve brain functionality.

If you have sustained a spinal cord injury, especially one that has also led to a traumatic brain injury, don’t hesitate to contact Evolving Gait Physical Therapy today. We will provide you with the relief you need, so you can start recovering and getting back to your normal life.
