“My body was my temple”: A narrative revealing body image experiences following treatment of a spinal cord injury

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The first people to treat a newly injured person are medical professionals. This narrative explores the lived experience of a young woman, Rebecca, and her journey within the medical system after sustaining a spinal cord injury. During an in-depth interview, Rebecca disclosed her transitioned body image experiences after being treated by medical staff immediately following her injury. Before her injury, she described a holistic body experience and named this experience her ‘temple'. During intensive care in the hospital she explained her body being treated as an object, which needed to be cured. The disconnected treatment of her body led to a loss of the private self, as she described her sacred body being stripped away – her ‘temple’ lost. This unique story evokes the importance of unveiling body image experiences after treatment of a spinal cord injury to medical professionals and their potential impact on clients’ subsequent body image experiences.
