What is a Spinal Injury?

Spinal injury refers to damage of the spinal cord, which is the bundle of nerves that carries messages from the brain to other parts of the body. 

Spinal injuries usually result from traumatic events, such as an accident, but can also be caused by non-traumatic injuries, such as tumours, blood clots or haemorrhages. It is estimated that 50,000 people in the UK live with a spinal cord injury. Damage to the spinal cord causes a loss of sensation and movement below the point of the injury. 

  • Paraplegia is caused by injuries to the back. This type of injury impairs mobility below the waist and in some cases the abdomen.
  • Tetraplegia, also known as quadriplegia, is one of the most severe forms of paralysis and results from injuries to the neck or brain. Tetraplegia will impair mobility in both arms and both legs.

A Day In The Life With Sara

"During my daily routine as a care assistant, l look forward to making a difference to my customers. Communication is very important, as is listening and companionship. I enjoy caring for their physical and emotional needs, keeping them self-motivated, helping them with their exercises, administering their medication, as well as assisting them with their personal hygiene and nutrition. Making sure my clients are safe and well looked after means everything to me."

The Benefits of Spinal Injury Home Care

More than 50% of spinal injuries occur in people between the ages of 16 and 30. The thought of moving to an elderly care home for people in this age group can be upsetting and distressing. Most would prefer to receive care in the comfort of their own home close to the people who are important to them. At home care can facilitate this and care assistants can support with:

  • Mobility
  • Physio and rehabilitation
  • Medication
  • Household tasks
  • Cooking and meal preparation
  • Personal care
  • Companionship

Our Care packages are bespoke

At Tiggo Care we understand how precious your loved one is to you and how unique they are. We also appreciate how overwhelming it can be to research and source the most suitable type of care.

We fundamentally believe that there is no ‘one size fits all’ care package and like to work with you and your loved one to understand your specific requirements. We’ll then create a tailored care package and match your relative with their ideal carer.

We're fully regulated

Unlike some other care providers, we are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission. This means we are regularly inspected, rated and audited to ensure we are a safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led organisation, committed to delivering the best possible care.

We’re also proud members of the Homecare Association, the U.K’s membership body for home care providers, which holds organisations to a high set of standards and requests them to abide by a strict code of practice

Our carers are fully vetted & trained

At Tiggo Care, all of our carers undergo a rigorous recruitment and induction process. They are fully vetted and background checked, with all references followed up. Our carers undertake their training on the best eLearning system currently available within the UK care market, ensuring they are well placed to deliver the best possible service. Specialist training courses such as moving and handling, medications and basic life support are also completed by our carers face to face, as we feel these courses are more effective when delivered in person.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are complete and incomplete spinal cord injuries?

A complete spinal cord injury refers to a total loss of sensory and motor function below the level of the injury, whereas those with an incomplete spinal cord injury will still have some degree of sensory or motor function below the level of the injury.

What to do after a spinal cord injury?

Immediately after the injury, people will require long-term hospitalisation and rehabilitation. This will include physical therapy and occupational therapy. Once the specialist team is happy with progress they will permit a discharge to either a care home or the person’s own home so long as adequate home care provision has been organised.

Can someone recover from a spinal cord injury?

In some cases, people with a spinal injury can make a full recovery. When it’s not possible to make a full recovery, it is still possible to make a partial recovery by following treatment plans prescribed by spinal specialists.

Is it possible to live at home with a spinal injury?

Yes, it’s perfectly possible to live at home with a spinal injury so long as adequate care provision has been organised with a professional care service.
