  • Epidural stimulation?

    This is yet another step forward in the struggle to cure/treatment paralysis. My hat goes off to everyone in the community who was contributed or supported in these efforts.

    That being said, what's the deal with epidural stimulation?! I understand they implant a strip of electrodes underneath the skin covering ones spinal cord? From their, the Doctors/Therapist use certain frequencies of electro stimulation to actually aid in the lower extremities regaining function. A direct jumpstart if you will.

    My biggest question now is how do I get involved in possibly having this procedure done? I myself am an ASIA "A" C6-C7 Complete SCI and am ready to try nearly anything just to see a little bit of physical progress. Oh, and my injury was on the 4th of July 2009. So almost 2 years post.
