Spinal injuries range from damage to discs and ligaments in the back and neck to vertebra fractures and spinal cord injury.
Where the spinal cord has been injured in an accident, which perhaps took place at work, on the road or in a sports accident there will often be irreversible and life changing damage, such as motor and sensory paralysis, impaired bowel, bladder or sexual function.
We know that spinal injured clients often need long term treatment. We know that there can be a significant period of adjustment when a spinal injury occurs. Some clients require their home to be adapted and some may need to adapt to using a wheelchair. Clients may need to be put in touch with specialist charities, medical practitioners or therapists and others may require long term rehabilitation and care for the rest of their lives. Most will need financial help – whether from state benefits or otherwise.
