Abstract:
Study of the degree to which current age, duration of injury, and neurological status affect the frequency of secondary health and psychosocial conditions in persons with long-term spinal cord injury (SCI), using both longitudinal and cross-sectional analysis. Data were collected from 439 individuals with SCI, initially at their 5th, 10th, and 15th anniversaries of injury, and then at their 10th, 15th, and 20th anniversaries. Different patterns were found in psychosocial and secondary health conditions related to neurological group, duration of injury, and age.
