    www.projectwalk.org - any comments?

    Has anyone ever had first hand experiance with this group or know of anyone that has?
    Heres the site - www.projectwalk.org

    "Our Mission...

    To prove that certain incomplete spinal cord injuries don't mean a lifetime in a wheelchair; that recovery is possible.

    Project Walk is a two year exercise recovery program for individuals with certain spinal cord injuries.

    The goal of Project Walk is to demonstrate that the incredible results achieved by our clients (and whose case histories are presented here) are not isolated miracles, but rather the reproducible results of proven techniques and hardwork."

    thanks,
    Michael

    if they are serious, this is what all incompletes should be doing.

    "By whatever means necessary"

    The first step to recovery for chronics is going to be psychological deprogramming....overcoming the brainwashing.

    I wonder how much our community at large could improve our quality of life if we worked together?

    I'm gonna go to my first support group meeting this month. The reason I didn't go to begin with was because the first meeting I was going to attend, the theme that night was going to be "bladder care products." I got plenty of that garbage in rehab, thankyou very much...

    My thoughts were the same -

    I'm right there with you Skyko and Bill j. If that is all it takes, wouldnt it be highly recommended in SCI centers? I wonder how much they charge?

    I somehow did not get it...

    Do they charge for their program?

    Are they kind of rehab or certified pt facility?

    Good job finding this. I just gave them a call and left a message. We'll see.

    The most interesting aspect of this, in my opinion is the gait training. Something in my gut keeps telling me that we should all be doing it. Completes, incompletes, etc. I know that Univ of Wash, St. Louis has a very good program. So does U of AZ (Ken Paulson). The results are promising. Even CR at C3 is still making progress 6 yrs. post.

    Is it possible to retrain ourselves through this method?

    Seems sketchy but plausible. Thanks again.
