Spinal Cord Essentials was developed at UHN TRI Spinal Cord Rehab in Toronto, ON. Spinal Cord Essentials is a collection of over 80 educational handouts written by health care professionals at Lyndhurst and edited by the Spinal Cord Essentials project team. The education handouts cover information about your injury, rehab program, medical complications, self-care and living in the community.
