Women’s Health: Special Considerations for Women with Spinal Cord Injuries and Disorders


Regular health care is an important part of quality of life for all women, but for those with spinal cord injuries and disorders (SCI/D), the right care is often difficult to find. Information pertaining to the unique medical needs and health concerns of women living with SCI/D is not always readily available. With this understanding, United Spinal Association has taken the initiative to provide information and access to resources for women with SCI/D, including this Health Tips checklist.
