Abstract

Date Presented 4/1/2017

While all persons with spinal cord injury (SCI) decreased in their activity of daily living function over 20 yr, those with C1–C4 SCI decreased the most compared with C5–C7 and T1–S5. Based on these findings, long-term occupational therapy intervention may be beneficial, especially for individuals with C1–C4 SCI.
