    Post Spinal cord injury affects heart function

    "Spinal cord injuries (SCIs) directly affect the heart, but the extent of any damage done is reliant on the severity of an SCI, new research out of the University of British Columbia, Canada, states." http://www.cardiovascularbusiness.co...on-study-finds
    "Some people say that, the longer you go the better it gets the more you get used to it, I'm actually finding the opposite is true."
