Activity limitations and participation restrictions four years after traumatic spinal cord injury in Cape Town, South Africa

van Wyk, Vania January 2018 (has links)
Magister Scientiae (Physiotherapy) - MSc(Physio) / The distressing event of Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) leads to complete or incomplete injury, and results in many complications such as such as neurogenic shock, cardiovascular disease, temperature regulatory problems, respiratory complications, dysphagia, thromboembolism, and pressure ulcers amongst others. These complications limit the individual’s functioning and participation. Participation is fruitful and meaningful when you are actively involved in a specific activity. To understand the lack of participation within a specific setting, it is important to know what the limitations in activities are, and what causes these limitations. The goal of rehabilitation should be to reintegrate patients back into the community so that they can fulfil their roles. Aim: The aim of the study was (1) To determine included participants’ socio-demographic and injury characteristics; (2) To describe healthcare services received by people living with long-term Traumatic Spinal Cord Injury (TCSI) over the past 12 months; (3) To determine the point prevalence of common activity limitations of survivors of TSCI four years after injury; (4) To determine the point prevalence of participation restrictions of survivors of TSCI four years after injury; and (5) To determine factors associated with activity limitations and selected participation restrictions four years after injury.

The relationships between pain and sleep in spinal cord injury patients

Pillay, Diana Subramony January 2016 (has links)
Dissertation submitted to the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of the Witwatersrand, in fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Medicine 2015 / Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a devastating injury affecting many South Africans. The purpose of the study was to investigate the relationship between SCI pain and sleep issues during acute inpatient rehabilitation. Seventeen participants were recruited. There were 2 interviews in the study; the 1st interview was done on the day participants were recruited. The 2nd interview was conducted a day before participants were discharged. The time elapsed between the first and second interview was 7.9±2.4. The patients were discharged from the Auckland Rehabilitation hospital (Hope ward). In the 2nd interview the questionnaires for pain, sleep and mood measures were repeated, and two additional questions were asked and the answers recorded for analysis of content. The key findings were; majority of the participants were Black, male (82%). The main cause of traumatic SCI was motor vehicle accident (59%). The common sites of injury were in the legs and neck/shoulder areas in both assessment (admission and discharge). The verbal descriptors that were commonly chosen in both assessments were, “sharp, shooting and tight.” Below level neuropathic pain, followed by musculoskeletal pain were the common types of pain reported. Pain interference was reported greatest in sleep and on average pain intensity was moderate (4-6 on 11-point Numerical Rating Scale). Strong correlations and positive relationships between Pain Catastrophizing Scale and subscales, and with the Pittsburgh Insomnia Rating total scale and subscales were reported in this study. Environmental factors were reported to affect sleep. A high incidence of Restless Leg Syndrome was reported in this study (24%). Depression was commonly reported by participants in both assessments. No significant association was found for the measures of sleep, Restless Leg Syndrome, depression and quality of life and the injury characteristics that were assessed. Significant associations were found at the 95% confidence levels for pain scores and injury characteristics (completeness of injury, level of injury and pain sites). Further studies in this area of pain and sleep management is warranted. It is important that clinicians and researchers in this area find appropriate management for secondary issues which have a severe impact on the daily activities of SCI people, decreasing their quality of life. Key words: SCI pain, sleep disturbances, mood / MT2016
