Mose Masoe Takes First Unassisted Steps Since Career-Ending Spinal Injury

Mose Masoe Takes First Unassisted Steps Since Career-Ending Spinal Injury

Ever since his career-ending spinal injury, the sporting community has rallied behind Mose Masoe.

And now, we have some a very promising update.

After initially being told that he may never walk again, Masoe has been filmed taking his first unassisted steps just eight months after the awful incident.

Earlier this year, the former NRL star's rugby league career came to an abrupt end after he hurt his neck during a pre-season game for Hull Kingston Rovers in the UK Super League.

The incident, which occurred during an innocuous tackle with a Wakefield Trinity player, left Masoe paralysed from the waist down.

Doctors told him he would be lucky to ever walk again.

But incredibly, 31-year-old Masoe has made a startling recovery.

At first, the New Zealand-born Samoan international spent three long months in a Hull hospital bed recovering.

And even though the life-changing injury happened in January of this year, by late April he began to regain feeling sensations in his legs.

Under the strict guidance of Flex Health, Masoe started his long and strenuous road to recovery.

Footage has now emerged online of Masoe taking his first unassisted steps just eight months after being told that he may never walk again.

Unsurprisingly, the clip instantly went viral with supporters around the globe sharing the heartwarming story.

"That was pretty terrifying at first, just because it's a bit different when you're walking outside. There's concrete, and if you fall over, you're going to get quite hurt," Masoe told ITV news.

"I always thought maybe after 12 months I'll probably be walking with one stick, and that's what I had in my head. But I just attacked it like any other injury I've ever had.

"You have to put in the time in rehab, and the small steps will get you there.

"One of the biggest things I wanted to do was just to hold my son and nurture him like any other dad, and I'm able to do that now. I'm just happy I can be that dad for him."
