Today, improved emergency care for people with spinal cord injuries, antibiotics to treat infections, and aggressive rehabilitation can minimize damage to the nervous system and restore function to varying degrees. Advances in research are giving doctors and people living with SCI hope that spinal cord injuries will eventually be repairable. With new surgical techniques and developments in spinal nerve regeneration, cell replacement, neuro-protection, and neuro-rehabilitation, the future for spinal cord injury survivors looks brighter than ever.
In human research, Duke University's Miguel Nicolelis, M.D., revealed groundbreaking details on a brain-machine interface that helps paralyzed patients walk again.
A systematic survey of the scientific literature shows that stem cell therapy can have a statistically significant impact on animal models of spinal cord injury, and points the way for future studies.
