By the time I finished my SCI program with Project Walk® in California, I was walking across the room on crutches. Bringing the program to Texas as Project Walk-Austin was my next best step.

Recovery Process

We help people with spinal cord injuries (SCI) regain their lives on their feet and out of their wheelchairs through an exercise-based recovery. We do not offer miracle cures. We offer hope. Our spinal cord injury recovery program is based on the Dardzinski Method™ which targets each individual’s weaknesses and retrains the nervous system to respond appropriately.

 

Traditional and Project Walk-Austin
Treatments

Traditional therapy teaches SCI patients how to live life in a wheelchair, and uses medication to control muscles spasms. We believe these spasms are a sign of a dysfunctional nervous system, not a broken one. By reducing medications and working with the body’s natural healing resources, over 90% of our clients regain function beyond the traditional expectations.
 


Stories of Hope

People come to Project Walk-Austin from all over the United States and many foreign countries. Their injuries were caused by different accidents, but we all have hope for our spinal cord injury recovery. Some of our clients have shared their stories for others to help them gain hope and encouragement.
