Open Access Graduate Research Paper
There are sixteen regional Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Centers serving the United States. The centers were designated by the National Spinal Cord Injury Association, formerly the National Paraplegia Foundation, founded by the paralyzed veterans of America in 1948. The purpose of rehabilitation of this group of patients is "to provide spinal cord injured individuals with the opportunity to resume 1 a lifestyle as similar to their preinjury state as is possible" (Lawson, 1978, p. 573). Rehabilitation centers utilize the efforts of many professionals working as a team to help their patients maximize their potential for independence.
