International Center for Spinal Cord Injury

Research. Restoration. Recovery.

Founded in 2005, the International Center for Spinal Cord Injury (ICSCI) represents something remarkable in the field of paralysis treatment: hope.

For many years, experts held that most improvements from spinal cord injuries (SCI) occurred in the first six months of recovery, and that improvement was impossible after two years. “Rehabilitation” focused mostly on teaching patients how to compensate for injuries they thought to be irreversible. The experts were wrong.
