Heriot-Watt study says mind matters for spinal patients

Published: July 16, 2018

People could recover from spinal injury more quickly if rehabilitation focused on their perception of the world around them, scientists have said.

A study carried out at Heriot-Watt University found benefits from working with a patient’s mind as well as body.

The Edinburgh researchers said a change in the way people view their surroundings after injury can make it harder to carry out everyday tasks.

Some patients, they said, might regain some movement in their legs.
