Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal Cord Education Program

The Spinal Cord Injury Education Program at BAPTIST HEALTH Rehabilitation Institute addresses specific issues and concerns of the spinal cord injured patients and their families. The program is based on the "Yes, You Can!" manual, produced by the Paralyzed Veterans of America, which is a guide to self-care for persons with spinal cord injury. This manual is given to each patient. The content of our program includes:

    Anatomy and Physiology of Spinal Cord Injuries
    Autonomic Dysreflexia
    Bowel Management
    Bladder Management
    Skin Management and Pressure Ulcers
    Range of Motion
    Psychosocial Adjustment
    Pulmonary/Circulatory Care
    Community Re-entry
    Substance Abuse
    Wheelchair and Cushion Maintenance
    Follow-up Care
    Use of Leisure

Exercise programs are designed by the therapists. The care coordinator provides a resource link with vocational rehabilitation as well as other services and agencies that may be beneficial to spinal cord injured patients.
