For hundreds of years, a spinal injury meant never walking again. Now researchers know the spine can learn. The paralyzed have hope. Exhausting new therapies teach the spine to have a mind of its own.

 For James Nall a crawling exercise is his toughest task at Craig Hospital in Englewood, CO. "You gotta crawl before you can walk. I gotta retrain everything. I'm like a giant kid -- a big baby." Nall's fast-moving life as a restaurant manager, runner and fun-loving friend came to a sharp halt on a routine trip to his basement laundry room a few years ago. He tripped on his home stairs and broke his neck upon landing, but refused to accept conventional wisdom that he wouldn't be able to walk again. Nall has now rededicated himself to a new therapy regimen endorsed by Craig Hospital called locomotor training. Nall is convinced he will walk again.
