                      what are the 3 phases? and I was injured ten years ago-return stopped after several years and then two months ago some more sensation came back...

                        Apparently according to the docs we have three phases of our injuries. Acute restoration, maintenence,and decline. Acute first 2 years, although I think that this one could be diff for diff people, maintenence 15-20, and finally decline, which occurs in ab as well as sci, but presents and declines much quicker in SCI than ab.

                            I dont know truthfully about the Decline phase area kind of a grey margin to me as I hope that one will regain some motor function and increased sensations etc...


                            I hope Dr's or who ever put these labels on the 3 phases realizes that Any progress is good news and this inspires many of us to keep on Beleiving in something ( Hope )

                              According to my doctor, it is the lack of excercise that allow the muscles to lose its fiber.

                              For those of us with SCI, degenerative process (muscles deterioration) is more pronounced than those with out the injury.

                              A life time commitment to excercise and overall fitness is key.
