Following a CT scan in London, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Imran Khan tweeted that his braces have come off and that he was walking without any external spinal-support.

Though the braces have come off, it is just one part of the long healing process where Imran would now have to go through rehabilitation.

Imran had suffered a potentially life threatening 14 foot drop as he was being lifted onto the stage at an election rally in Lahore on May 7, 2013.

The fall damaged his spinal column and left cuts and bruises on his forehead. He spent at least two weeks in the hospital, recovering and three more weeks in bed rest at his home in Lahore.
