Over the past century, the remarkable advances in health care have changed the outlook on Spinal Cord Injury (SCI). The “grim prognosis” has become a story of the past, and today, the life expectancy of the SCI survivors has been comparable to that of general population, and the health care providers are working harder to improve quality of life of SCI patients, whilst various ongoing research are promising for a better healing potentials.
