Each year, hundreds of thousands of individuals are admitted to hospitals for burn injuries that occur in the home, workplace, or as the result of car accidents. This type of injury can be debilitating and require thousands of dollars in ongoing medical bills. If the injury was due to negligence, responsible parties can be held liable. In the past year, juries have awarded plaintiffs millions of dollars in compensation.
Exercise can help enhance recovery and quality of life for people who have experienced a burn injury. A new resource from Model Systems Knowledge Translation Center (MSKTC) offers burn survivors a variety of free online resources including videos, slideshows, and information on how to properly exercise after injury.
