Back On Track

Physical therapy is key to the process of rehabilitation after spinal cord injury. The compassionate experts at Advanced Rehabilitation have solutions for the pain of such trauma. If your body’s a city, your spinal cord’s main street. The other streets are kind of like nerves. If your body’s a tree, your spinal cord is the trunk. There’s a lot going on up top, as well as below, but it’s the main road for what’s going on up inside. Like a major highway, spinal cords run the length of the body collecting messages from the outer world and sending responses back to receptors. Say your little brother runs up behind you and dumps yogurt on your head. Nerves on the skin detect the yogurt’s cool wetness and send the message back to the spinal cord, then the brain. Like motion sensors, they pick up all those itchy little tickles as it rolls down over your skull and all through your hair. They contact your brain. It evaluates the signals and figures out what you’re realizing suddenly–Your brother’s being a jerk. Your spinal chord sends a reflex signal to your arm, (no brain needed), which strikes through the air like a cobra, latching onto his collar before he’s able to run away. Aaaaand we’ll stop the story right about here. (We all know how that goes down) The main point is that the spinal cord is a very big deal. So when this key sensory structure is ruptured or damaged, it’s a devastating blow to the body’s overall functioning. The staff at Advanced Rehabilitation bypass the utilization of modalities and passive treatment, and focus on using the most effective physical therapy techniques to evaluate and treat the specific injury and its effects. Advanced Rehabilitation has certified McKenzie Therapists on staff, which makes them experts on treatments for the spine. They’re a fix-it crew for your body’s most crucial information highway, and they’re dedicated to getting you back on track.
