Initial Rehabilitation Program for Paraplegia
Paraplegia is an impairment in motor or sensory function of the lower extremities. It is usually caused by spinal cord injury or a congenital condition such as spina bifida that affects the neural components of the spinal canal. The region of the spinal canal that is affected in paraplegia is either the thoracic, lumbar, or sacral regions. If all four limbs are affected by paralysis, tetraplegia or quadriplegia is the correct term. If only one limb is affected, the correct term is monoplegia.
Most patients require 28 additional days of rehabilitation treatment to consolidate the progress made in the initial program. For this reason we propose a second program of continuation for those patients who can stand on their own or with the help of his companion without requiring nursing care.
The comprehensive and intensive program proposed by CIREN is intended to improve many functions with a system of comprehensive and intensive rehabilitation.
Initial rehabilitation program for paraplegia program includes the following:
- 28 Nights of hospitalization. The Hospitalization will include accommodation, nursing care and medical assistance, as well as three course meals).
- specialized medical care and physiotherapy
- re-consultation with rehabilitation (3)
- Poliphysiotherapy (36 sessions)
