I am an Information Specialist with the
Paralysis Resource Center
I am not a medical professional, but I
think you should consult your doctor. In
case you need a consultation with a physiatrist
(rehab doctor). They see a lot of spinal cord injuries and conditions
and can make he appropriate recommendations/referrals for you. Our document on
physiatrists includes a link to their website where you can search for a
physiatrist in your area.
I also have information on skin/wound care.
Please contact me so I can send this info
to you: [email protected] or
(800) 539-7309 x5911.
