The purpose of this article is to examine how a probe into the creative aspect of mind could offer wounded players living with a spinal cord injury (SCI) an affective opportunity to improve their quality of life, and use the same as a therapy or treatment leading to a possible cure. The data presented herein seeks to explore the reasons for receiving damage to the cord, how sports has been deemed as a major factor that causes the spinal cord injury, biological and scientific rationale for recovery of normal physical functioning following conventional SCI treatment, and a non-conventional rehabilitative means where the injured personnel immerse themselves in their artistic practice on their road to recovery. The article discusses the above in light of findings that have resulted from clinical trials and cutting-edge rehabilitation research conducted on SCI population samples throughout the USA.
