Spinal Cord Injury Rehab | Vibra Rehabilitation Hospital of Rancho Mirage

Hi! I’m Paige McCampbell, an occupational therapist
here at Vibra Rehabilitation Hospital. Today’s video is on spinal cord injury. As an OT I help you regain independence and
identity. We do this and assist through this transition
through adaptive equipment, such as universal cuffs, mouth sticks, durable medical equipment such as this specialized wheelchair, and other strategies such as tenodesis grasp. Another pivotal part of our therapy is caregiver
support and training. Here at Vibra, we serve patients with varying
levels and severity of spinal cord injury. Our individualized, comprehensive, client-centered care creates a caring culture of hope and possibilities. Some common causes of spinal injury are falls,
accidents and surgeries. The elderly are the 2nd largest population
resulting in falls. Here at Vibra we offer a brand new, state-of-the-art hospital and equipment, proven treatment approach, and a positive, caring
attitude that permeates the entire hospital. Let’s discuss some of these points a little
bit more. Our rehabilitation hospital was completed
just this past summer. We have 50 private rooms, large family areas, an in-house pharmacy, a large outdoor therapy area, and an enormous 5000 square foot indoor
therapy gym. Specific to spinal cord injuries we have the
Bioness Vector, which is the only one available in 100 miles. Our private rooms also have over-bed lifts. In addition to equipment, we also have a home
simulation area, as you see behind me, where occupational therapists and physical therapists
focus on mobility, gait and activities of daily living. In addition to therapy we also provide education
on bowel and bladder control, skin care and pressure relief, as well as managing pain
and spasticity. And although every hospital will say that
they are caring, Vibra believes that love, support, and positive thinking manifest physiological healing. Expectations are powerful, but thinking and
action are real medicine, and necessary in supporting and continuing wellness. We are here for you. Thank you for listening to this short overview
of spinal cord injuries. If you have any more questions and would like
to call our hospital, please call 760-895-6600. Thank you.
