Fully updated and revised, the second edition of Spinal Cord Injury is
the definitive guide for people with SCI and their families. Combining
first-person accounts with up-to-date medical information, the book
addresses all aspects of spinal cord injury -- recovery and coping, sex
and family matters, transportation and housing, employment and leisure
-- and reviews the challenges encountered by people with spinal cord
injury throughout their lives.

The authors explain how spinal
cord injury affects physical functioning and the impact of physical
changes on emotions and social life. They offer a holistic approach to
recovery that incorporates all aspects of living and emphasizes
achieving optimal health, personal fulfillment, and meaningful family
and social relationships.

The new edition of this helpful book
includes a completely revised chapter on recovery and regeneration
research, stem cell research, and activity-based therapies. New
information is offered on medical and rehabilitative care of children
and adolescents as well as preventative health measures for people of
all ages living with spinal cord injury. The book includes expanded
ideas and resources for socializing, travel, sports and recreation.
