Rehabbing from a spinal injury can be a long process and new research is telling us more about how important your mind is.
The study done by Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh found that spinal injuries can affect an individual’s perception of the space before them and their reach. This is the case even if their upper body is unaffected by their injury.
Simple tasks, such as eating or taking care of yourself all of a sudden becomes very difficult to do.
The researchers who conducted this study believe that if mind rehabilitation and physical rehabilitation were combined, recovery rates would go up tremendously.
Individuals who have lost function of their lower limbs now have hope to once again regain it.
