Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal Cord InjuriesAbout 10,000 Americans suffer spinal cord injuries each year. Spinal cord injury results from a traumatic event, damaging cells within the spinal cord and possibly severing the nerve tracks that relay signals up and down the spinal cord. In this Patient Power webcast, David Chen, MD, Medical Director of the Spinal Cord Injury Acute Care Center and Rehabilitation at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and the Shirley Ryan Ability lab, and his patient, Erin, join Andrew to talk about spinal cord injuries.
