Early prediction of ambulation is important to the patient especially during the early stages following injury. Neurological recovery is not uncommon following Spinal Cord damage and is predictable. Neurological recovery does not entirely depend on the method of management of the Spinal Injury. The positive and negative prognostic indicators of neurological recovery, its extent and the factors that enhance it, prevent it or cause neurological deterioration in patients with complete and incomplete cord damage will be discussed. I will demonstrate that the management of the multi-system physiological impairment and malfunction is as important as the management of the injured Spine is an optimum recovery is to be expected.
