Southern Arizona VA Health Care System
Spinal Cord Injury and Disorders Team
The spinal cord is the main pathway for transmitting information between the brain and the nerves that lead to muscles, skin, internal organs and glands. Injury to the spinal cord disrupts movement, sensation and function. Spinal Cord Injury and Disorders (SCI/D) require ongoing management of impairments and prevention of related problems. Other specialized conditions include the care coordination of Multiple Sclerosis(MS) and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). VA has the largest single network of SCI/D care in the nation. VA integrates vocational, psychological and social services within a continuum of care and addresses changing needs throughout the Veteran's life. VA provides supplies, preventive health care and education for Veterans with SCI/D. VA also maintains medical equipment. The Spinal Cord Clinic and Disorders (SCI/D) Team at the Southern Arizona VA Health Care System (SAVAHCS) in Tucson is a specialized outpatient primary care team (also known as a PACT) affiliated with the San Diego VA Spinal Cord Injury Center in California. Together the two health care facilities provide a full-range of care to Veterans who have sustained an injury or a generally stable neurological impairment of the spinal cord.
