Those with spinal cord injuries in California have a new option when choosing a physical therapy center or gym. Project Walk is a non-profit gym offering a different style of therapy for those with limited mobility resulting from a spinal cord injury.
The Project Walk staff claims that they work on the entire body, even the muscles or limbs that aren’t ever used or even felt. The gym uses specialized staff and equipment to help work these parts of the body that other physical therapy programs might ignore. Many clients claim that this type of exercise has significantly improved their quality of life and health.
Many of Project Walk’s clientele are paraplegic and quadriplegic and, though they cannot walk, they still report feeling better; they enjoy more endurance and have better balance. Of the 250,000 Americans with spinal cord injuries, 52 percent are paraplegic and 47 percent are quadriplegic. Spinal cord injuries are far too common and often result from accidents of all types.
Nearly 11,000 new spinal cord injuries occur each year in the U.S. and 40 percent of these injuries were sustained in motor vehicle accidents. Car crashes are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries. Other common causes include sports-related injuries, swimming accidents, and violence or physical assault. People over age 65 who injure their spinal cord usually do it while falling down.
Almost 90 percent of those diagnosed with a spinal cord injury are released from medical care to a private home. Those in recovery at home can benefit hugely from a physical therapy program like Project Walk.
The medical expenses, rehabilitation, pain, and suffering resulting from a spinal injury can be overwhelming. If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury resulting from someone else’s negligence, contact an experienced spinal cord injury lawyer to discuss what legal roads to recourse you may have. A spinal cord injury victim already has enough to worry about; the financial costs of such a serious injury should not be the victim’s burden.
I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm!
I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally.
Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did.
A great experience. Excellent law firm which treats their client’s with the utmost respect. Very knowledgeable and made me fell extremely secure when handling my personal injury claim. Would highly recommend Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos to handle your next case.
I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
