National Spinal Injuries Centre

Stoke Mandeville - NSIC Online



Saying “Welcome to the NSIC” is always a strange saying even after many years. No one ever chooses to be in the position of looking for information about spinal cord injury, but if you have come to our website we hope that we can work with you and your family members to give the best possible care and outcome we can together.

The NSIC assists people to rebuild their life and health after a spinal cord injury or impairment, irrespective of age, in order to achieve realistic goals and reach their highest feasible level of function.
We do this by providing a comprehensive, specialised, interdisciplinary rehabilitation service across your lifespan.
This provides you with the skills, knowledge and information to return to your role in society and lead healthy and fulfilling lives.

Just keep working and keep learning with us!
