Tommy Sutor, MS, PhD, CSCS, Tommy currently a post-doctoral fellow studying spinal cord injury rehabilitation. Tommy’s first experience working with people with spinal cord injuries was as a trainer and Program Director at Push to Walk in New Jersey. After this, he obtained a PhD from the University of Florida, investigating neuromodulatory therapies to improve motor function for people with spinal cord injuries at Brooks Rehabilitation in Jacksonville, Florida. He believes that providing intensive exercise to those with paralysis is the best way currently available for people to improve their health, function, and overall quality of life. With this in mind, Tommy has developed a free webinar to introduce respiratory strength training into activity-based training programs for people with spinal cord injuries and other neurological disorders.
