Spinal injuries cause damage to nerve roots that carry signals to and from the brain. On basis its classification and severity, this type of hurtful injury could also damage the gray matter in the central part of the cord, causing segmental losses of interneuron’s and motor neurons or in other words it leads to paralysis. Spinal cord injury (SCI) is associated with most terrible outcomes and requires a prolonged rehabilitation. Ayurveda methods are often utilized to treat such patients. A case of SCI was followed up for 6 months upon an Ayurvedic composite intervention and subsequently reported. The composite treatment plan involved Ayurvedic oral medications as well as Panchakarma procedures. A substantial clinical and patient centered outcome improvement in existing neurological deficits and quality of life was observed after 6 months of the Ayurvedic management given to this patient.
