What has exercise based therapy done for me?
I was involved in a motorcycle accident on April 27 2006. The accident left me paralyzed from the waist down as a T12-L1 paraplegic. During the first 6 months after being released from Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, I was striving for rehabilitation and worked with swimming, PT's, and massages programs. I realized after I started SCI-FIT that there was so much more I thought I was capable of. SCI-FIT incorporates exercises and training that not only assist in maintaining and improving my legs but also improve all aspects of my body for ease of day to day living. Their staff is friendly and understanding which I found very important in a program such as this. They keep me motivated and working hard to keep my body in the best condition for recovery.
