Why can't a broken spine be regenerated in the nerve?

In brief: It is being research

If you are speaking of a spine fracture with resulting damage to the spinal cord it is true that at present time we are unable to regenerate the spinal cord.
With stem cell research and other techniques we hope to overcome this in the future. At present Taxol (paclitaxel) has been found to stimulate spinal cord regrowth in rats. Chondroitinase-abc has been shown to help break up the dense scar tissue

In brief: Nerve regeneration

Spinal fractures can result in spinal cord injuries and in the lumbar spine, nerve injuries known as a cauda equina syndrome.
Spinal cord injuries are much more severe but recovery can occur if there are any nerve signals that pass across the injury site. A complete spinal cord injury, however, does not have the potential for regeneration.
