Summary – Spinal Cord injury is usually due to accidents and trauma. Also it affects particularly males, leading to complications such as erectile dysfunction. Psychogenic and/or Reflexogenic ED can occur after trauma to the spinal cord T11 and lower. Biomedicine usually treats the condition with pharmacotherapy and mechanical devices. From an traditional Chinese medicine standpoint, acupuncture and eletro-acupuncture can restore function in some cases while phytotherapy can also provide support. We concluded the presentation by emphasizing the fact that sexual issues are complex at both the mind and body levels.
