In the Spring Issue of Spinal Column, a Look at Shepherd Center’s Custom-Made Care

The new issue of Shepherd Center's quarterly magazine is now available for download as a PDF file here. Subscribers to the print version will receive copies via postal mail in the coming days.

In this issue of Spinal Column, we explore the programs Shepherd Center offers that build upon the solid foundation of traditional therapy to support patients’ overall wellness and prepare them and their families for vibrant lives back home. Carson West and his mom, Alexis Schulze, found that their training through Shepherd Center’s High-Tetraplegia Program (HiTe) made the transition home much more manageable. As a member of Shepherd Center’s Eula C. and Andrew C. Carlos Multiple Sclerosis Rehabilitation and Wellness Program, Cathy May says she has learned to actively fight MS by keeping her body strong and less stressed. And Anna Katherine (AK) Spangler and her family leaned on their faith and appreciated the support of Shepherd’s chaplains after AK sustained a spinal cord injury.

The magazine also features these stories, among other patient profiles, staff highlights, honorariums, and memorials:

Helping Patients Understand Their Brain Injuries As a board-certified neuropsychologist, Michelle Jackson, Ph.D., ABPP-CN, educates patients and families on how injury or illness may affect brain function.

Saying “Yes!” to Adventure After sustaining a spinal cord injury, Alesha Savannah thought her life was over. Instead, the self-proclaimed “people person” has thrived on new experiences.

Back on Track Peter Bradshaw credits Shepherd Center’s Complex Concussion Clinic with helping him get his life back on track.
