We started with “Spinal Cord Injury 101” and went on to cover sex and fertility issues, pressure ulcers, hospital transitions and how to cope. Our experts also explain the most important steps in rehabilitation and outline the psychological and physical problems after spinal cord injury that both patients and families must face. Pediatric experts discuss spinal cord injuries to children.
