Abstract:
Study investigated the relationship between obesity and the psychosocial well-being among individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI). Psychosocial well-being was measured in terms of stress, global quality of life, and health-related quality of life. Analysis explored why these relationships in people with SCI might differ from those in the general population. However, no significant relationships were observed. The reasons for the findings and their implications for future research and interventions aimed at improving the health status of overweight people with SCI are discussed.
