Here are two websites to remember if you ever want to find out anything about spinal cord injuries.
You can join the CareCure forum to collect or acquire information if you are a person with a spinal cord injury, family member, caregiver, health care professional, researcher or a friend of a person with a spinal cord injury. This spinal cord injury message board is run by Rutgers University.
CareCure has over 70 forums where there is discussion about everything from life, care, legislation, advocacy, sports, travel, pain, caregiving, technology, relationships, politics and much more. No subject is taboo, trust me. I have learned a lot of pros and cons about different medical procedures I have had done and/or might have done in the future. There a lot of great suggestions that can only come from someone who has gone through it.
This website has just popped up that I think will be another good resource of information. It is called SPINALpedia. I have just become a member and am just figuring it out. But it looks like it will be a great place to share ideas and do research.
There used to be a website called apparelyzed. But for some reason the owner of the site took it down. You can't even go back in time in the Internet world to get any of the info. It is a real shame. That was the best website out there and it is all gone.
If you are looking for more information about spinal cord injuries whether you yourself are injured, am a friend, family member or medical professional, I encourage you to take a look at these websites. The amount of information on them is mind-boggling. If someone has thought of it is on there.
