Our Story

“My life is finished”is what we always hear them say ..all those who have come to us till date.

One stroke of fate and a young individual is left hugely incapacitated to live a normal life.

From battered bodies to broken souls, with multi-disabilities & lost hopes, life becomes nothing more than a burden.

Spinal Cord Injury has been widely declared as the most devastating disability. This multi disability incapacitates a person’s physical mobility and the person is confined to a wheel chair. Bowel and bladder dysfunction renders a person completely dependent on a care taker. Skin sensation is lost.

Healing is not just required for the outer pain but also the inner anguish & frustration. The pain is beyond words & no one can comprehend the battle that they fight daily to secure a a mere Normal life for themselves. Facing these daunting challenges together, laughing and crying together, sharing, striving and applauding each other has been the journey of Chandigarh Spinal Rehab. In this journey, 182 persons have been rehabilitated with a holistic approach to heal them, physically, mentally and emotionally. We are proud to state that 79% are living a Productive, Dignified & a Meaningful life today!!
