People with spinal cord injures at or above T6 may be at risk for a condition called autonomic dysreflexia that can result in a dangerous spike in blood pressure.

In this installment of the Living With a Spinal Cord Injury series from MossRehab, we explain more about the condition and offer strategies on recognizing and responding to it.

The Living With a Spinal Cord Injury series is made possible by a gift from David and Barbara Loeb.

MossRehab has been ranked among the top physical rehabilitation facilities in the U.S. for 25 years.
