Which people with traumatic paraplegia return to work?

Résumé This research aimed to investigate the factors that affect the return to work of individuals with traumatic paraplegia and to characterize post-injury work by means of a cross-sectional epidemiological study without statistical inference. The participants were patients at the Spinal Cord Injury Program of the Sarah Rehabilitation Hospital, Salvador, Brazil. The descriptive analysis used mean and standard deviation for continuous variables and proportions for categorical variables. Male predominated among the 42 respondents, with a mean age of 36 years. Mean schooling years was 9 years. Twenty-two respondents returned to work, 21 of which were in the informal labor market. Mean time to return to work was 3 years. The main reasons for returning to work were need for money, personal satisfaction and contact with other people. In this study, returning to work is relevant for adults with spinal cord injury, providing them with higher income and better quality of life. We also noted the importance of higher education level for the successful return to work. Therefore, it is necessary to improve the return to work process, the qualification and professional rehabilitation of these workers.
