If you've had a spinal cord injury, you may benefit from therapy to help improve physical function in your upper extremities — your shoulders, arms, forearms, wrists and hands.

Therapists use several techniques to restore movement needed in your daily life, including nerve re-education, muscle strengthening, task training and others. Therapists work with you to reduce your long-term complications and help you regain the ability to perform self-care and daily activities.
