There are several potential causes of injury to humans. Injuries are common across the state of Texas due to several causes, including automobile accidents, falls, and even crimes. Not every injury results in […]
There are several treatments available, but it is important for an individual to find the treatment that works best for his or her individual injuries. Even if two people suffer the same types of injuries, they may not respond to the same treatment. For this reason, it’s important for the doctor to choose the treatment that works best for the patient.
A person who suffers a spinal cord injury will suffer from various functional losses that may include the inability to move or feel anything. Paralysis injuries result from different types of traumatic events (falls, gunshot wounds, car accidents, etc.) or diseases which can include spina bifida or polio, for example. What appears strange to many people is that a person does not necessarily sustain a spinal cord injury when he or she suffers from what we know as a broken back or neck, if only the bones in the surrounding area are damaged. Yet a loss of functioning may occur even though the spinal cord is not severed.
The effects an injured party might suffer from a spinal cord injury depend on both the type of injury, and its severity. The injury can be complete or incomplete depending on the level of sensation and movement a person feels.

Quite frequently, you will find the highest quality programs located within the confines of facilities that are designed specifically for the treatment of spinal cord injuries. The program should involve a team of specialists that include, but are not necessarily limited to the following:
In the state of Texas, the Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services (DARS) offers a program called Comprehensive Rehabilitation Services (CRS). This program works to help those who have spinal cord injuries use all of the available resources to help them improve their potential for functioning independently. The Texas CRS program serves to help consumers who have spinal cord injuries (SCIs) receive individualized services in order to improve their ability to function independently.
