Abstract

This paper provides an overview on various alternative, complementary, or energy-based therapies that expand the healing spectrum of individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI). Not only do they have the capability to help a variety of secondary conditions, they have the ability in some people, for certain injuries, to restore function, sometimes dramatically. After providing an overall contextual rationale for the use of alternative medicine, this paper briefly summarizes various Eastern-medicine healing modalities, laser-based therapies, nutritional and homeopathic approaches, and pulsed electromagnetic therapies.
