Damage in the nervous system causes paralysis. But, not all damage is created equal. Project Walk New Jersey builds programs based on the movement disorder — taking into consideration the injury, status of current health, and incorporating the latest education and research.
Spinal cord injury is an insult to the spinal cord resulting in a change in normal motor, sensory, or autonomic function. The clients at Project Walk have all suffered some type of spinal cord injury.
A stroke, also known as a cerebrovascular accident (CVA), is damage to the brain tissue due to a disruption in the blood supply to the brain.
A TBI is caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain. TBIs can range from slight to severe and have both temporary and lifelong effects.
ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), also known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”, is a non-traumatic, progressive, neurodegenerative motor neuron disease.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a degenerative disease that affects the central nervous system (CNS). The immune system works against the (CNS) by attacking the myelin, the substance that protects and insulates the nerve fibers. Damaged myelin forms scar tissue limiting nerve impulses traveling to and from the spinal cord and brain.
Initial signs of cerebral palsy are typically identified in infancy or early childhood but are permanent with no current cure.
Transverse myelitis is an inflammation of both sides of one section of the spinal cord. This neurological disorder often damages the insulating material covering nerve cell fibers (myelin). Transverse myelitis interrupts the messages that the spinal cord nerves send throughout the body.
