Abstract Spinal cord injury (SCI) resulting from trauma imposes major and permanent life changes on the predominantly young male population who receive these injuries. Paralysis of the muscle below the level of injury can lead to limited and altered mobility, self-care and ability to participate in valued social activities. In addition to the musculoskeletal system, many other body systems are also impaired. The psychosocial impact of the SCI can be just as great as the physical impact.
Rehabilitation is an important element toward achieving a fulfilling and active life after an SCI. Physical therapist play a key role in rehabilitation process. A detailed neurological assessment of a patient was done and the severity of the injury was graded according to ASIA impairment scale. A systematic treatment plan was made and altered according to the patient’s recovery and needs.
Keywords Spinal cord injury, Rehabilitation, Physical therapist, ASIA impairment scale.
