Autonomic Dysreflexia (AD) can occur for people with a spinal cord injury at or above T6. It can cause an involuntary reaction in the body as the nervous system becomes overstimulated. When triggered, AD requires quick and correct action or there may be serious consequence such as a stroke. Because many health professionals are not familiar with this condition, it is important for people who are at risk for AD, including the people close to them, to recognise the symptoms and know how to act.
