Clinical neurorestorative therapies recently made great progress for patients with spinal cord injury (SCI). This paper systemically reviews historical perspectives, recent advancements and achievements in SCI through key neurorestorative strategies. In this study, a search was performed in the PubMed, Scopus, and Scholar Google search engines using the keywords “neurorestorative strategies”, “spinal cord injury”, “cell therapy”, “neuromodulation”, and “nerve bridges”. Clinical studies published in the English language were included. It is paramount for academic community involved in this field to take the initiative of a multicenter randomized, double-blind, and placebo-control clinical study with high level of evidence-based treatments for most SCI neurorestorative strategies in patient management. It is of utmost need to establish standard therapeutic methods for patients with SCI as early as possible.
