  • Scuba diving may benefit those with spinal cord injuries

    i saw this on my local news, and came here and didnt see it posted.

    A preliminary study finds that scuba diving may help improve muscle movement, touch sensitivity and post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms in people with spinal cord injuries.

    full story here.

    I did a little scuba diving back in the day, and one of the more amazing aspects to me was the fact that nothing was touching my skin except water. No wheelchair seating, no semi-uncomfortable backrest digging in.......just weightlessness, which was awesome.

        This article was posted in Manouli's sticky the other day and I thought it would have generated some discussion. Eventhough it's only early days, it does seem very interesting. I look forward to the results of an expanded study and I hope they also look at the pain side of things if they can get the funding for it.
