Ernährungsberatung im Schweizer Paraplegiker-Zentrum

Nutritional Counselling

Individual nutritional counselling and therapy

The specialised team of nutritional counsellors advises and treats patients with all kinds of complications and disorders associated with spinal cord injuries and various neurological disorders.

The patients’ medical records and individual lifestyle habits are central to any treatment. With our expert knowledge, we provide support and practical recommendations during the rehabilitation process as well as afterwards.

Extensive experience

The Swiss Paraplegic Centre (SPC) set up its Nutritional Counselling department in 2002. This department focuses on our patients’ nutrition and quality of life. Over time, we have expanded the team, as well as our specialist knowledge and experience.

We apply scientific principles in our everyday work, as well as broadening our knowledge in the area of spinal cord injuries and nutrition through regular participation in research projects. One example of this is the special screening tool for detecting malnutrition. We regularly use this with inpatients who have spinal cord injuries, for the early detection of nutritional deficiencies and malnutrition.

The team is made up of three qualified nutritional counsellors and one student (Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics) in the final year of her studies.
