REHABILITATION OF THE PARAPLEGIC PATIENT

JAMA. 1956;162(13):1208-1209. doi:10.1001/jama.1956.02970300008004
Abstract

• The end-result in rehabilitating the paraplegic patient is preparing him for a job, or at least preparing him for further vocational training that will result in a job. Total rehabilitation requires the cooperative services of the neurosurgeon, urologist, orthopedic surgeon, and physiatrist. The series of activities presented, which follow definitive care, are directed to the paraplegic patient's adjustment to walking and daily living.
