Served one residential patient with SCI



Did not serve any with limb loss


Served two residential patients with SCI

On a case-by-case basis Moody Neuro will consider those with a primary SCI diagnosis.

In order to participate in rehabilitation programming, it is necessary for brain injury patients with co-occurring SCI to have some use of their hands for mobility, ability to perform some ADL’s (activities of daily living) and bowel and bladder care.

Patients with incomplete spinal cord injuries are generally appropriate for admission if the injury occurred at the C 5-6 level in which:

Sensory and motor functions are preserved below the neurological level of injury with more than half of key muscles having a grade of 3 (active movement against gravity)

Potential for recovery of function, are appropriate for admission

Patients with complete spinal cord injuries at or below the T-1 level are appropriate for admission

Moody’s Spinal Cord Injury program focuses on patient needs and practice a unified, interdisciplinary approach to patient care

We are current in our knowledge and innovative in our treatment practices and use of technology

The Spinal cord rehabilitation program focuses on advanced functional training, including independence with bathing and bowel and bladder care

The patient may continue to work on building strength and endurance while waiting for a body jacket or neck brace to be removed. Once the body jacket or the neck brace is removed, the patient will be able to participate in more advanced activities

The purpose of the SCI Rehabilitation Program:

To help people learn to function as independently as possible

To provide information about community resources to our patients and their families

To lessen any medical complications caused by the injury or illness

To train family members and other caregivers to provide appropriate care

To provide education about spinal cord injury to our patients and their families

To provide appropriate referrals for care following discharge

When patients no longer need inpatient rehabilitation, they may continue to work toward their goals in an outpatient setting.
