This Quick Health Check asks questions based on the most common health problems that people living with a spinal cord injury experience, but not all. It is important that you consult with your healthcare professional to identify your problem and how best to treat it.
Please note, keeping a Pain Diary for several weeks prior to consultation will help your healthcare professional to better understand the problem.
