Project Walk is the first place that gave us hope that it is possible to recover from a spinal cord injury.
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) May 14, 2013
Project Walk Spinal Cord Injury Recovery Center is proud to speak at this year’s USSOCOM Care Coalition Conference in Tampa, FL. This conference is in conjunction with the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference and brings together all aspects of Wounded Warrior care. Project Walk provides recovery programs designed around industry leading research and client care programs to increase mobility in clients who have a spinal cord injury. The Dardzinski Method® gets people out of their wheelchair, gives them hope and increases their quality of life.
The focus of this year’s conference is on mental health, the commitment to Wounded Warriors and their families, advocacy, care, and transition initiatives for Special Operators. Project Walk’s mission mirrors these areas with over a decade of experience working with individuals affected by paralysis. Program options for military personnel would include home recovery options and facility programs that allow for individual growth, education, support and encouragement.
Project Walk’s presentation at this year’s Care Coalition Conference focuses on past and current research efforts that include a four-year bone density study and the effects of activity-based recovery on spinal cord injuries. The bone density study, funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH), will also be presented in Chicago during the American Spinal Cord Injury Association’s Annual Meeting.
“We feel honored to be a part of this amazing conference and look forward to the potential of offering our services to the men and women who bravely defended our country,” says Tim Yates, Chief Executive Officer, Project Walk Spinal Cord Injury Recovery Center. “With Project Walk headquarters located a short drive from Camp Pendleton we could immediately provide our services and program options to the military community.”
