Victory Over Paralysis: Understanding Spinal Cord Injury

Each spinal cord injury is unique, and researchers at the University of Louisville are striving to understand that injury and the impact it has an individual's life. Every incremental gain a person makes in mobility, health, and quality of life is a triumph. The University of Louisville's Kentucky Spinal Cord Injury Research Center has basic and translational research taking place alongside clinical care at Frazier Rehab Institute. The lab's proximity to that clinical care makes the daily, incremental victories available to patients possible. Locomotor training is the foundation to recovery of function below the level of injury, reducing secondary complications and improving quality of life.
