Factors associated with employment in Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

Participation in organized sports is positively associated with employment in adults with Spinal Cord Injury (SCI). This conclusion was reached by Blauwet C et al. and published in the American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, 04/22/2013. The researchers are from the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Harvard Medical School, Boston and Spaulding-Harvard Model System, Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts USA. Alternatively, sex, duration of injury, wheelchair use, and participation in individually planned exercise were not significantly associated with employment.
