Unfortunately there is severe spinal cord injury and complete recovery is unlikely. Physiotherapy will be helpful to regain the power to certain extent. Consult a spine surgeon and he will explain various treatment options.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
