When our children head onto a high school sports field or court, we don’t anticipate that they will sustain a catastrophic injury. However, many high school athletes suffer from traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries, particular when they play contact sports like football or hockey. Last November, a Riverside County high school linebacker, Jordan Walker, suffered serious trauma to his spinal cord and neck that left him paralyzed. Walker was featured in a recent article in The Press-Enterprise because it looks as though he may be able to return home to continue rehabilitation in Southern California. Since the accident, the high school football player has been receiving treatment in Colorado.
