Several Miami Project researchers are evaluating the role nutritional supplements may have on improving function after spinal cord injury. Studies in animals have shown that dietary restriction has detrimental effects on spinal cord repair and that calorie intake can impact early recovery. Clinical researchers, knowing that supplements have been widely used to enhance physical performance in athletes, are testing the benefits of supplemental nutrition in conjunction with rehabilitative therapy in people with spinal cord injury.
