I'm writing a story and I would like to know Is it possible to recover from a spinal cord injury?.
I know it may vary from person to person and injury to injury, but how long does it take to recover (if at all)? How often does someone have to have therapy, for how long, and how much would the therapists have to push that person? And just in case you people were wondering, In my story, a girl of age 15 becomes paralyzed in an accident. How would she be able to cope if she had to live the rest of her life in a wheelchair? And please, if all you are going to say to me is "Why on earth would you write a story about that," or "That's terrible," don't reply to my question. I'm ninteen and I'm writing this story for all of those people who do have to live their lives in wheelchairs. Throughout my story, I want her to become stronger and be able to walk again. I want to give all those people hope and courage so that they lives their lives to the fullest they can. Oh, and I have done some research on the topic, but would like someone with personal or observatory experience to help me out. Thanks.
