Ziad, a paralysed 14-year-old boy, often stays alone in his room as bombs fall on Douma, the main rebel-stronghold in eastern Ghouta on the outskirts of the Syrian capital Damascus. Limited in scope, number and size, there are no nearby shelters equipped to receive Ziad who cannot be moved quickly or easily during airstrikes because of his spinal injuries. "The shelters are not ready to accept people like me," he said. Until last year, treatment options were limited for spinal patients caught in a brutal civil war that has killed hundreds of thousands of people and displaced more than 11 million. Now, the Specialist Centre for the Rehabilitation and Care of Spinal Cord Injuries provides physical and psychological treatment. There are an estimated 500 people with spinal injuries in eastern Ghouta, almost all casualties of the six-year war. The centre, currently funded entirely by donations, can treat 12 patients at a time for a course of three to six months. REUTERS/Bassam Khabieh SEARCH "SPINE" FOR THIS STORY.

Professor Gregoire Courtine, head of the Center for Neuroprosthetics and Brain Mind Institute poses at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Ecublens near Lausanne May 31, 2012. Rats with spinal cord injuries and severe paralysis are now walking thanks to researchers lead by Courtine at EPFL. Published in the June 1, 2012 issue of 'Science' magazine, the results show that a severed section of the spinal cord can make a comeback when its own innate intelligence and regenerative capacity is awakened. According to lead author Courtine, it is yet unclear if similar rehabilitation techniques could work for humans, but the observed nerve growth hints at new methods for treating paralysis.
