ABOUT SPINAL CORD IOWA
Every day, our four centres care for patients, along with our learning institute, conduct leading-edge research and train the next generation of health professionals. At the same time, we look for ways to do even better what we already do well.
What We Do
Each year, thousands of Canadians suffer spinal cord injuries. Injuries like this can happen from accidents or conditions that damage the spinal cord, and the tragic result is sensory and motor disabilities that affect how a person moves and their control of muscles, as well as the function of their organs.
They’re robbed of movement and physical sensation. Rehab often helps them become more independent, but it can’t reverse the damage.
