Life after Spinal Cord Injury
A Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) leads to multiple physical challenges. There is no treatment anywhere in the world. The best way to move ahead is to get good quality and timely rehabilitation.
Many spinal cord injured persons who receive such rehabilitation lead independent, productive and dignified lives irrespective of whether they are from villages, towns or cities. A few examples – John Samuel, Naveen Iyer and Ketna Mehta - are featured here to assure you that a quality life is definitely possible.
So there is no need to lose heart. Use the support network that is being created by The Spinal Foundation to get the best possible guidance and support.
