Why do you need a neuro-respiratory physiotherapist if you have a spinal injury?

 

For anyone with a spinal cord injury, it’s very common to also experience respiratory complications. This is because a spinal cord injury often results in respiratory muscle weakness. A spinal injury can put strain on the chest wall, rib cage, abdominal muscles and diaphragm, which ultimately impacts breathing. Depending on which part of the spine is damaged, be it the neck, middle or lower back, this determines how breathing is compromised.

Support coordinators understandably want to find the best solution for the people in their care. On the outset, it might appear that selecting a multi-disciplinary clinic, where several services are offered under one roof, will save time and money.
