Living with your spinal cord injury

Your time with us is the start of a new journey and our aim is for you to live with your spinal cord injury as independently as possible.

But we’re always here for you. All our spinal cord injury patients receive lifelong follow up treatment and support when you need it.

Coping with a spinal cord injury

Spinal cord injury is a big trauma. It can cause a number of negative emotions, which may have as much impact on your life as physical changes to your body. It’s natural to feel emotions such as grief, disbelief, shock, denial, guilt, depression and anxiety.

You may feel all, some or none of these. It’s equally important to address any emotional issues as the physical aspects of your injury. Many patients seek help and advice from their named nurse, doctor or psychologist.
