He has a disease called Scoliosis...or curvature of the spine. He can't help it. Give him a break and just appreciate his mind.

Ummm...he is a partisan ideologue, he doesn't have a mind of his own, it is already made up for all things that matter.

Charles hit his head on the bottom of a swimming pool while diving first year at college. That injury often causes a spinal cord injury in the neck. That makes him a quadraplegic. As a neurosurgicsl nurse I have care for many what we call "quads" and "paras". He was apparently hospitalized for 14 months.
Today the treatment of cervical spine injuries are treated a little differently where they try to give a large dose of steroids within 6 hours of the injury to help reduce the swelling of the cord which may lower the level of injury improving their function from the injury. Sometimes it works, other times it doesn't. I haven't been caring for this population for awhile so the treatment may have changed. They try to start rehab. as early when the pt. can tolerate it.
The level of the injury anywhere in the spinal cord determines how much function they will have. He looks to me like perhaps a C4 or 5 quad. He can move his shoulders but I don't think he can raise his forearms or hands. He also speaks in a manner that shows where his diaphragm was affected.You will notice that he takes a big breath then speaks.

People often think if someone can use their hands they must be a paraplegic(injury to the thoracic spine) Quads who are C6-7 can use their hands but have to use special instruments to hold a spoon, fork,etc.

Function at the various levels of injury,shoulder shrug (C4), elbow flexion (C5), wrist extension (C6), and elbow extension (C7). Some C7 quads can push the wheels on a wheelchairif they were leather gloves for traction. Believe it or not they can drive a specially adapted van.

People with Mid to lower thoracic injuries have full use of their arms but not their legs, bladder or bowels so they are paraplegia.

It's amazing that Charles has survived since 1972. The 2 problems that plague quads ae urinary tract infections or pneumonia which can kill them. It's also amazing that he finished med.school became a psychiatrist,etc.

His political leanings have evolved over the years with him becoming a Republican and conservative. But evey so once in awhile he'll fool you and support a liberal point of view.
