Sport, disability and social integration
Introduction: One of the most relevant disabilities is caused by Spinal Cord Injury (SCI). Typical causes of spinal cord damage are trauma, disease, or congenital disorders. In most cases SCI leads to paraplegia or quadriplegia. The purpose of this qualitative study was to evaluate the contribution of sporting activity to the individual rehabilitation project and to compare the personal experiences of professional wheelchair athletes(1-2).
