In brief: Mild confusion
The spinal column, the bone and soft tissue segmented column that surrounds/supports/protects the spinal cord, can be repaired.
The bundle of nerves that make up the spinal cord, that structure that causes paralysis when injured, cannot be repaired. Why it is so is a bit of a mystery.
