Comparison of one year post-injury outcomes between intensive locomotor training and conventional therapy after motor incomplete spinal cord injury
Background: Spinal cord injury (SCI) is often a devastating condition that negatively affects an individual’s physical, psychological, and social well-being requiring extensive rehabilitation. The majority of all SCIs are incomplete with at least some sensory and/or motor activity remaining intact below the level of the injury, sparing some function.
