Health Guidance​

Living Well with SCI is the motto of The Spinal Foundation. For each person with SCI, this has to be in the face of multiple disabilities such as loss of:

  • Sensation
  • Mobility (legs, hands and fingers)
  • Bladder control
  • Bowel control
  • Sexual function
  • Temperature control
  • Ease of respiration

These are accentuated by mishandling after injury, poor rehabilitation, recourse to unscientific treatments, high cost of rehabilitation and post-injury complications such as pressure ulcers, urinary tract infections, loss of vocation / jobs as well as sizeable ongoing medical costs for life
