About Spinal Cord Injuries and Massage. Creative Chakra Spa bodyworkers specialize in energy and light-touch work with their SCI clients including therapeutic touch, reiki, craniosacral therapy, and any number of other modalities, can be especially powerful. As SCI clients’ muscle tone changes, our clients are likely to experience postural distortions that can be quite painful. Massage can help to limit this process and reduce the pain associated with it. Massage can be a powerful tool in keeping these changes at bay and SCI clients have to cope with chronic tendinitis and overuse syndromes in their hands, wrists, elbows and shoulders. In these cases it’s not only appropriate, but essential to receive bodywork that can help to restore function as quickly as possible. In addition, addressing the mechanical challenges of being confined to a wheelchair. The spasticity that SCI patients live with is a chronically progressive situation. This progress can be slowed or even halted with a carefully applied program of exercise and stretching-massage.
Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a situation in which some or all of the fibers in the spinal cord are damaged. If the spinal cord is intact, some motor or sensory function may remain in the affected tissues. This factor will determine what kind of recovery a person can expect to achieve. Obviously, the higher the damage, the more of the body is affected. Injuries to the anterior part of the cord affect motor function, while damage to the posterior aspect affects the senses of touch, proprioception, and vibration. Damage to the lateral parts of the cord interrupts sensations of pain and temperature. An injury that affects the lower abdomen and extremities, but leaves the chest and arms intact, is called paraplegia. An injury that impacts the body from the neck down is called tetraplegia or quadriplegia. Among the SCI patients alive today, quadriplegics slightly outnumber paraplegics.
Spinal Cord Injury Complications
• Decubitus ulcers.
• Heterotopic ossification.
• Deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism.
• Respiratory infection.
• Urinary tract infection.
• Autonomic hyperreflexia.
• Cardiovascular disease.
• Chronic pain.
• Spasticity, contractures.
Spinal Cord Injury Treatment Options
New treatment options for SCI patients are being developed daily. Some SCI patients may have electrodes implanted in muscles that are controlled from an external computer. These implants can provide pinching and gripping capabilities for people who otherwise would not have the use of their hands. Surgical transfer of healthy tendons can also be helpful. For some people, the triceps muscle may be paralyzed, while the deltoid is not. Surgically extending the posterior deltoid tendon and attaching it to the olecranon can provide these people with the power it takes to use a wheelchair. Support LRO in the work they do to empower and research all the possibilities to enrich the lives of those who have a spinal cord injury. These people can range from a family member at 60yrs old, a mountain biking athlete or a 17 yr old professional surfer, such as founder of LRO, Jesse Billauer. All pro-surfers know the risk, but it rarely happens and as Jesse proves, surfing is freedom of the spirit and he still surfs the biggest waves all over the world, wheelchair or not! An inspiration to us all.
