Why Is Xavier Walking Around in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST?

In case you haven't noticed, the young Charles Xavier is up and walking around in X-Men: Days of Future Past. A lot of fans, including myself, have asked why and how this is happening. Technically, he's supposed to be in a wheelchair. There has been no explanation yet, but in a recent interview with IGN, producer Simon Kinberg offers a little tease, saying:

"Why young Xavier is not in a wheelchair is a big part of the story and his arch over the span of the movie of this one. He is about sort of accepting his place in the chair, embracing that. Cause this story more than anything else in the film emotionally is the story of young broken messed up Xavier, Charles, becoming Professor X. His arch, his emotional arc is sort of the foundation of the movie."

This makes me wonder if Xavier is walking around with the help of his mutant mind power. Maybe all of his focus is on making himself walk, and he needs to let go so he can fully embrace the man that he will become. This is just complete speculation on my part. Why do you think Xavier is walking around?
