Meta Novantisari, I Lukitra Wardhani

Abstract

Cervical spinal cord injury causes severe devastations involving multiple domains affecting a healthy life. Rehabilitation has been increasingly recognized as an important measure in overall management of such conditions. The primary goals of rehabilitation are prevention of secondary complications, restoration of physical functioning to the maximum, and adopting appropriate measures to utilize the existing functions to make the activities of daily living (ADL) less dependent. Patient 1: a 13-year-old boy diagnosed with C4 Tetraplegia AIS D ec. Atlantoaxial Dislocation He had cervical traction and operation fusion occipitoatlantoaxial fusion. Patient 2: a 19-year-old male diagnosed with C1 Tetraplegia AIS D ec. Atlantoaxial Dislocation, He had cervical traction and operation atlantooccipital fusion. Patient 3: a 28-year-old male diagnosed with C4 Tetraplegia AIS D ec. Occipitoatlantoaxial Dislocation. He had cervical traction and operation occipitoatlantoaxial fusion and an iliac graft. The rehabilitation program included active breathing exercises, ROM exercises, sensory reeducation, spasticiy inhibition, cervical orthosis, and mobilization gradually. The goals for this patient were independent ambulation, independent ADL and improving sensory deficits. Comprehensive rehabilitation intervention can help patients with spinal cord injury caused by cervical spinal cord injury to be more functional, independent ambulation and ADL.
