ECHEMENDIA DEL VALLE, Alexander. Methodology for conventional gait training in patients with spinal injuries. Preliminary study. Rev Podium [online]. 2021, vol.16, n.3, pp.757-771.  Epub 06-Sep-2021. ISSN 1996-2452.

Spinal cord injury is a complex medical condition that disrupts the lives of people who suffer from it, those affected become dependent due to the multiple sequelae that accompany it, among which the loss of gait stands out, standing as one of priorities in neurorehabilitation. Most international neurorehabilitation programs do not include a defined methodology for gait recovery in spinal cord injured patients. Specialists from the International Center for Neurological Restoration created a methodology for this purpose. The objective of the study was to verify the behavior of the application of the methodology with a sample of 5 patients treated at the institution using content analysis, observation and measurement methods. The patients in the sample were evaluated before and after applying the methodology with the SCIM III, WISCI II scales. Treatment lasted 8 weeks for each patient. The results showed an increase in the functional capacity of walking in the patients, without the presence of complications. It is assumed that the use of the methodology can guarantee a functional process for gait training, in an organized manner in patients with spinal cord injuries.
