Orthopaedic Review

An orthopaedic consultant works with the medical and physiotherapy team to monitor and advise you in your ongoing skeletal growth. 
  • Spinal cord injury can affect how your bones grow after injury.  
  • Our aim is to enable your body to grow as it would have done prior to injury. 
  • You may be sent to have x-rays of your spine and pelvis as well
  • This, as well as examination, will help the orthopaedic team provide the best advice to manage you as you grow, in order to prevent secondary deformity.
