Co-authored by physicians, lay experts, and a rehabilitation engineer who himself sustained a spinal cord injury, this practical guide addresses in layperson's terms the many medical, social, and psychological issues that face spinal cord-injured patients and their families. The authors describe what happens to the body after spinal cord injury, discuss the physical implications of such injuries, and explain how injured persons can minimize problems with urinary function, bowel function, skin care, pain, spasticity, and autonomic dysreflexia. Practical suggestions are offered to help patients handle difficulties with mobility, sex and intimacy, sports and recreation, and travel and transportation.
