"What I see as the big thing is the collaboration from acute care to rehabilitation...For someone with SCI, it's a major change in their quality of life and way of life, and there needs to be more than just physical management of it- there must be education and social support for patients and families, and that's something we can improve through a stronger teamwork type of approach." -Dr. FinkelsteinIt is hoped that a portion of money raised for this new Centre will go to support a scientist to carry on spinal injury research and raise awareness of spinal trauma. One of the goals is also to ease the initial sense of anxiety and helplessness that newly injured people feel. Gluckstein Personal Injury Lawyers recognizes that not all spinal cord injuries are the same. There are a great variation in the types of injury and the damage which can be the eventual result of a spinal cord injury i.e. quadriplegia, paraplegia, complete or incomplete injuries. We are aware that the nature and severity of the injury will determine the acute and rehabilitative needs of the client. It is crucial to select a high quality rehabilitation program with skilled professionals to help a newly injured person develop the skills needed to maintain physical and emotional health throughout their lifetime. Our personal injury lawyers and rehabilitation team here at Gluckstein Personal Injury Lawyers can help answer your questions and make sure that you and your loved ones have access to first-rate care.
