I don't know if I've seen this before, but I may be wrong. During Amok Time, McCoy timely administers his shot to Kirk, causing him to appear dead. During the attempted strangulation, however, Spock injures Kirk's spinal cord, crippling him. How you take it from there is up to you and whether he recovers is your choice, but Kirk needs to spend time in that weird "wheelchair" contraption that Pike was in in the original series.
