SPINAL CORD INJURY (SCI) GROUP

What we do:

The goal of the Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) support group is to provide multidisciplinary spinal cord injury services that include fundamental information from spine specialists, neurologists, urologists, physical therapists, and rehabilitation for psychological, vocational, and recreational needs for overall well being.

Our support group’s mission is to instill optimism and hope among those who have suffered spinal cord injuries. SCI is a severe psycho social condition that leaves a person permanently physically unable and significantly alters their quality of life. Still lacking in our country are awareness campaigns and policies to assist the necessary post-SCI awareness. In order to face life with dignity after the wounded area has been stabilized, rehabilitation is essential. The bladder, colon, skin, bones, and other organs are all impacted by spinal cord injury in addition to the limbs. Therefore, our goal is to spread knowledge and provide fundamental safety precautions. therefore, our goal is to provide information on these specialties as well as essential steps to be performed after an injury.
