Spinal cord injury (SCI) is damage to the spinal cord that causes temporary or permanent changes in its function. SCI is a life-changing event which has profound effects on domains like physical, psychological, social, sexual, and vocational aspects of the person with SCI. This injury is a high-cost chronic disability, and the long-term complications increase morbidity and decrease community participation and health-related quality of life. The psycho-social impact of the SCI is more concerned and has a major impact on the affected individuals, their families and the society.
