Spinal Cord Injury: Dietary Issues
People with spinal cord injuries (SCIs) may have special nutritional needs, such as needing protein to prevent pressure sores or increased fiber to help with bowel care. A registered dietitian can help you plan a diet to meet your nutritional needs.
You may want to limit how many high-fat foods you eat, as these types of food may make it harder to control your bowel program.
