    I don't know anything about the PW facility in Boston, but I can HIGHLY recommend SCI-Step in Ohio...You should really check them out...They offer a free trial week so that you can check out the program and facility as well. I was there this winter and am hoping to return in the near future.

    So, even though you are up and walking, because you have no sensation or motor control in your butt, you believe yourself to have a "complete" injury? Yeah, this is why I think the ASIA scale is crap.

    but you know what they say hard work always pays off .
    Who are "they"? I've never heard them say anything of the kind. Well, OK, I've heard some of them make statements like that, but they are usually the ones who refuse to acknowledge that anyone in this country could possibly be thwarted by their individual circumstances like poverty, lack of education, societal discrimination, etc. Regarding this specific context, I would heartily disagree. Some neurological injuries are absolute. As an analogy, who would disagree with the fact that if you cut off my hand, it will not grow back no matter how hard I work?

    I say hard work always pays off. I know you don't care what I say but I am going to say it anyway.
    Even if you are a quadriplegic who is poor, uneducated, from a minority etc. - hard work always pay off. The result is unimportant. It's the very act of giving 100% to something that you believe in or feel passionate about that benefits the person doing the work. There is always room for self improvement - even if it is not the result you were working toward.

    I find you very confusing. You attack people who post with an "I can't" attitude and you attack people who post with an "I can" attitude.

    I believe to be asia A complete because sitting in my chair I wouldn't be able to flicker a muscle but thanks to the hard work and caring people at sci-step i'm able to walk with afo's and four arm crutches for long distances .


    Hard work pays off !

    Whew Tiger........like it or not, the Asia score is what it is. As for someone putting their all into any specific effort I say "hooray." Doesn't matter what the outcome might be, although it would be terrific if outcome met the hopes and desires of that individual, but the mere fact of putting effort into something is far preferable to being in a fetal position clutching a remote control and wanting to die.

    Thanks in advance.
    My Husband Pat has been as PW in Boston for 2 months now and he loves it. He has a C6 complete injury and has already noticed new sensations. His core strength has improved and he just overall feels better. So far everyone that I have talked to in the program here have no complaints and have noticed their own improvements. So far none of us have seen dramatic changes but it is the little things that add up over time.

    Pat goes twice a week for 3 hour each day.

    If you would like PM and I can give you more info or my phone number if you want to talk.

    Many Blessings,
    Angela
