Cost of Living with a Spinal Cord Injury
The cost of living with a spinal cord injury—including healthcare and living expenses—will vary depending on several factors, such as the level of neurological impairment. These costs do not take into account other indirect expenses, such as the loss of wages or fringe benefits.
Understanding Paralysis Injuries
Spinal cord injuries often lead to paralysis. Paralysis can affect either just the upper body, lower body, one side of the body, or all four limbs. In addition to spinal cord injuries, paralysis can also be caused by severe brain injuries or other neurological conditions.
