In the US, there are approximately 230,000 people living with traumatic Spinal Cord Injury (SCI), with over 10,000 more becoming disabled each year. Learning to live with SCI can be a challenge to any individual, caregiver or family. To improve their ability to cope, everyone involved must understand how the body responds to a Spinal Cord Injury and educate themselves about treatment and management issues. Spinal Cord Injury, the newest title in the critically acclaimed American Academy of Neurology Press Quality of Life Guides, is an authoritative and reliable resource for any patient, family member or caregiver looking to inform themselves on this topic.
