Hi, I had gone through your query and understand your concerns.
May not be completely but a ray of chance to walk back again by the therapy but it definitely prevent muscle degeneration from prolonged under use.
A treatment method that can be implemented with the goal of helping to regain motor function in the affected limb is constraint-induced movement therapy. This consists of constraining the unaffected limb, forcing the affected limb to accomplish tasks of daily living.
hope this answers your query. Thank you
