Can a person walk again after a spinal cord injury?

A spinal cord injury (SCI) occurs when there is any damage to the spinal cord resulting in a loss of motor and/or sensory function of some part or parts of the body. These result from high-energy trauma such as a motor vehicle collision, a harsh fall, or a contact sports injury. Since the spinal cord aids in the central nervous system’s (CNS) function, any damage here can cause an immense change in the affected person’s life.
All SCIs are very different, and everything from the diagnosis to treatment to recovery depends on the type, severity, and location of the SCI. There are also many external factors that can affect recovery. One general rule that applies to almost all SCIs is that the most physical recovery occurs within the first six months after the injury. The higher that the site of injury is, the more widespread that the paralysis is (since everything below the injury site can be paralyzed) so it will take longer to be able to walk again since there is more area of which to work on recovering function.
There are a few ways that can help an individual to walk again, and perhaps get to walk again quicker. Physical therapy can help you to develop muscle memory and get accustomed to certain movements, such as walking. An alternative way that some patients choose to look into is electrical stimulation, which is when electrical currents flow through your body (starting at the spinal column) to stimulate muscle movement via imitation of brain signals. Ultimately, you should ask your doctor for your best options for recovery concerning your own injury and what would benefit you the most.
