Abstract:
There are many myths about adaptation to SCI, such as the belief everyone must go through a grief process or everyone gets depressed. We hope to improve how we assist people with SCI by gathering information on what people experience after SCI, what treatments they receive and how they view their own health physically and emotionally over time. This study follows people from inpatient rehabilitation to one year after injury.
