just wondering if any one in uk just watched the air rescue ambulance documentry & saw the guy paralysed from the neck down after motorbike crash, made me stop & think for a minute ! Feel quite fortunate at this moment in time.

Any tips on best way to use ice to reduce swelling ie for how long & how often ? thanks

just curious if any come accross any instances where this has happened to a parent as well. be interested to know thanks as the identical injury ( same leg ) stuck my dad ( although he was dancing the greek way not the abba way)
