- About Spinal Cord Injuries -
Recovery from spinal cord injury is fairly predictable.
· People with a complete injury generally are not expected to make too significant a recovery except, some improvement in motor strength in the zone of injury.
· Recovery for persons with an incomplete injury is less predictable. Most recovery occurs within the first six months; however, some additional neurological recovery may take place up to 18 months or longer after injury.
· In a patient with a cauda equina (the nerve area below the spine) injury, some recovery is possible through regeneration for up to three years following spinal cord injury. It is a peripheral nerve type of injury.
