Description

Project Walk® Paralysis Recovery Centers, the world leader in paralysis recovery, provides an improved quality of life for people with disabilities through intense activity-based recovery programs, education, training, research and development.

Founded in 1999, Project Walk provides activity-based recovery programs designed around industry leading research, training, and state-of-the-art technology to increase mobility in clients who have a spinal cord injury. For over a decade spinal cord injury victims have had to travel across the world to participate in Project Walk’s program.

Clients can begin the program as soon as they leave the hospital and can continue full-time at a center or at home through the most comprehensive integrated home care model on the market today. The Dardzinski Method®, practiced only at Project Walk, is supported by published research that shows 71% of clients improve function below the level of injury.

Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injury can result in paralysis of the muscles used for breathing; paralysis and/or loss of feeling in all or some of the trunk, arms, and legs; weakness; numbness; loss of bowel and bladder control; and numerous secondary conditions including respiratory problems, pressure sores, and sometimes fatal spikes in blood pressure. Approximately 12,000 new spinal cord injuries occur in the U.S. each year. A majority of injuries occur from motor vehicle accidents, falls, work-related accidents, sports injuries, and penetrations such as stab or gunshot wounds.
