ABSTRACT
Th e article advocates for an accelerated research in phytotherapy for spinal cord injury recovery and functional restoration. Pubmed search analysis shows that phytotherapeutic products for spinal cord injury treatment are negligible, and not in the main stream neurosciences research. With the potentials inherent in medicinal plants, it is imperative to explore phytotherapy for spinal cord injury since conventional methods of treatments have failed to provide any satisfactory clinical intervention. The current reasoning is to evaluate several therapeutic agents in a multimodal therapeutic strategy for the treatment of spinal cord injury. However, determining the therapeutic agents for this strategy that would provide satisfactory clinical intervention to achieve meaningful functional sensorimotor improvement remains critical. The interventions that would be safe and efficacious for a multimodal treatment strategy for spinal cord injury are not known yet. Fortunately, phytotherapy eliminates the fear of complications that combined conventional high-tech treatment may exhibit since the bioactive constituents in phytotherapeutic agents are naturally combined.
