Statistics on Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation from Enable Exercise You Should Know
Most people do not give much thought to spinal cord injuries until either they or one of their loved ones experiences one. A few vital statistics about these injuries:
In Australia, roughly 12,000 people live with a spinal cord injury with around 350 to 400 new injuries occurring each year.
Of those spinal cord injuries, 35% result in complete quadriplegia or paraplegia while the rest result in incomplete injuries with some nerve functions still in operation.
Vehicle accidents are the most common cause of spinal cord injuries in Australia.
