      I found this page in rehab with my iphone during the first stint of sleepless nights, being a C7 I felt lucky. I asked my nurse what ASIA classification I was, she was clueless. That's when I knew I was pretty much on my own with this thing. More sleepless nights. Like it or lump it, I told myself "let's get outta here" worked my ass off, "home" in 3 months. Hardest thing I ever did..

      but yeah, good page - informative & factual.

        The site above is good, and has been included in our recommended websites for some time.

        I still think this article by Dr. Young is one of the best about the anatomy and physiology of SCI. I use this for new staff orientation on my unit:


        The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.
