Spinal cord and nerve injuries are often a consequence of accident or illness and therefore difficult to predict or prevent. These types of injuries often come with associated pain and complications. The spinal cord/nerve injury and pain (SCNIP) team at HBI is focused on managing chronic pain, accelerating rehabilitation and translating discoveries into treatments.
Individuals living with spinal cord and nerve injury often suffer permanent changes in strength, sensation and other body functions below the site of the injury. Mental and emotional health can often suffer in individuals living with spinal cord and nerve injury conditions.
