Gym student hit by car moves his toe for the first time since the accident

Regilânio da Silva felt sensitivity in his fingers again after being hit by a 150kg load

Regilânio da Silva Inácio, 42, from Ceará, has regained sensation and can move his toes, nine months after suffering an accident in a gym in which he was hit in the back by a 150kg machine. He suffered a spinal injury and lost the use of his legs. On social media, Regilânio shows the progress of his recovery.

The case occurred in a gym in Juazeiro do Norte, in Cariri, Ceará. Over the past month, Regilânio has been able to stand with the help of a walker and has regained feeling in his legs. He also took a few steps indoors, as shown in a video on his Instagram account.

In an interview with Earthhe says his evolution has been rapid, and has surprised even the professionals who follow him.

“Thank God my recovery is progressing very well, even above normal. The physiotherapists and doctors who performed my surgery were very amazed by my progress, which happened very quickly. Lately this sign has started to appear, I can move my fingers without using devices, of course. For me it’s a great advantage, it’s a great evolution,” he says.

Regilânio reveals that he relies heavily on faith and has only progressed with the dedication and support of professionals and his family.

I do it on the weekend [fisioterapia] I don’t stay still with my family, I do physiotherapy from Monday to Monday”, he says.

The accident occurred in August 2023. Regilânio underwent surgery to place pins in his spine and remains in rehabilitation. Previously, he worked as an app driver and received the news that he had less than a 1% chance of walking again.

Persevering, he believed from the beginning that, with commitment and dedication, he would walk alone again. Today he can take a few steps with the help of people and devices. He follows a regular physiotherapy routine every day in the clinic and also at home.
