  • Why are persons with SCI prone to develop pressure sores?
    Share This Blog :

    When a normal, healthy person lies or sits in one position for a long time he begins to feel uncomfortable, which makes him/her move or roll over to let another part of his body bear his weight. A person with a spinal injury :

    • fails to respond to warnings of pain or discomfort due to loss of sensation and
    • secondly is unable to move or roll over to relieve pressure,

    These two points that make them at a very high risk of developing pressure sores.
