Adjustment is defined as adapting to a new condition. Everyone makes adjustments during their lifetime. Some of the conditions that people adjust to may be planned and there is time to think about how to react to the situation. Other events may be a surprise, and people are forced to adjust to an unplanned event. Most spinal cord injuries do not give time to plan ahead. Therefore, people with SCI may have trouble adjusting. This document will help those affected understand the common emotions and give suggestions on how to resolve them.
