Advances in spinal cord injuries can't come fast enough

These 2 technologies working together would be a cool rehabilitation tool....

But if the cells were transplanted from his nose, would the patient start smelling his backside? Hey it is great stuff. I can see these other techniques providing hope for longer-term paraplegics. In short-term patient the topically applied medicine may be all that is needed, strangely enough.

It just doesn't work well to post a serious subject on "Caption This" day - I know - I have been guilty of the same thing many times.

You know by now, that I will poke in jest at things what are real and serious. I think this is all great stuff. If it causes the halt and lame to rise up and walk, it is in fact a miracle of medical science.

Probably just more suicide inducing false hope for paraplegics

Sorry to say its not going to be an easy road or a quick fix. As hard as it is, one has to keep pushing for good results.

One can't underestimate mobility.

At times just a little mobility, no matter how, can be a relief, no matter how slight.

This came in on my feeds a few days ago.

A friend of mine has developed a transcutaneous treatment that is applied over the area where the spinal cord injury was received. Healing and re-gaining nerve impulses and muscular control depends on the delay between injury and the first application of this medicine. I think that is also a miracle. Requires no implant.
