Back/Spinal Cord Injury

Our Experience With Back And Spinal Cord Injury Is Exhaustive

When you think about it, life can be broken down into three parts: sleep, work and being at home with your family. A serious back or spinal cord injury affects all three. Back injury victims have a hard time sleeping without medication. They cannot do the work that once supported their families, and many find that they cannot even help around the house the way they used to. From yard mowing, to laundry, to playing with the kids, their lives are affected in every way. Serious back and spinal cord injury can result in paralysis in a leg or arm. The most devastating back and spine injury can result in paralysis from the waist or mid chest down.
