LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Sept. 5, 2012) — Research studies from teams headed by a University of Louisville/Frazier Rehab Institute neuroscientist published online this week demonstrate for the first time that innovative rehabilitative treatments for individuals with spinal cord injuries (SCI) can lead to significant functional improvements in patients and a higher quality of life.

Eleven studies published in the September issue of the “Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation” conclude that establishing a network of rehab centers for SCI that standardizes treatment can lead to significant functional improvements for chronically injured patients.
