New facility in Dallas helps people with spinal cord injuries

Spinal cord injuries can be difficult to fathom for people who have never experienced one. The struggles are physical and psychological, and rehabilitation is expensive and not always covered by insurance. When such a catastrophic injury occurs because of someone else's negligence, Galveston residents need to know that there may be financial remedies available through a personal injury lawsuit.

Texans may be particularly interested to hear of some brave individuals in Dallas who are confronting the psychological and physical struggles endured by people with spinal cord injuries. The organization is called Project Walk, and its purpose is to offer rehabilitation services as well as boost positive feelings in people who have suffered spinal cord injuries.

Joy, confidence and strength -- these are feelings Kendall Hall, Project Walk's executive director, wants to encourage in patients who come to the recovery center. She recently opened the facility, and supporters of it have said the rehabilitation goes beyond the norm.

Hall, who has suffered a spinal cord injury herself, says Project Walk takes a full-body approach, working on patients' functioning areas and non-functioning areas. Another goal of the center is to instill hope and confidence in patients who have undoubtedly suffering life-altering consequences because of their injuries.

According to one patient, the rehabilitation plan at Project Walk "gives you the hope to stand and hope to walk and just the confidence, I've said it many times, the confidence, independence..."

Some people have criticized the recovery center for giving false hope to people with spinal cord injuries, but Hall insists that hope is a good and healthy thing for people going through such an ordeal.

Like many rehabilitation programs for catastrophic injuries, Project Walk's services are not covered by insurance. Texans who need this kind of rehabilitation may need to speak with an attorney about receiving the compensation and treatment they deserve.
