Abstract: Restoring functions following spinal cord injury (SCI) was the most challenging task in clinical practice in the past. Fortunately, some effective neurorestorative methods have been exploited in acute, subacute, and chronic phase of SCI. There were no clinical neurorestorative therapeutic guidelines available before this document which can be followed by physicians to manage patients with acute, subacute, and chronic SCI. This guideline will be a helpful reference to physicians to implement their neurorestorative strategies that can help to improve the neurological functions in patients with SCI and their quality of life.
