For some with partial spinal cord injury, two different therapies show positive results

e speed was 1.1 meters per second.

Entering the trial earlier (less than four weeks after the injury) was associated with faster walking speeds and longer walking distances at the six-month follow-up.

"Although these results give an unexpected answer to the initial question, the study is important and ultimately successful, because it reaffirms the importance of controlled experiments, highlights major gaps in current knowledge, and will help guide the design, implementation, and assessment of new treatment methods in spinal cord injury," said Jonathan R. Wolpaw, MD, a member of the AAN who wrote an editorial in the same issue of Neurology.

Given that both therapy methods produced similar outcomes, clinicians and patients could base their use of each strategy on personal preferences, skill, availability of equipment, and costs, said Dobkin.
