In brief: Limited

Treatment options are relatively limited, and many remain experimental.
Complications abound and include things that immobility predisposes one to--blood clots, skin breakdown, contractures, etc. Bowel and bladder control also present problems, too--catheterizations, urinary infections, etc. Many other problems can occur--pain, deformities, etc.
