"You have to try it. The results are really good!"
Embarking on the journey towards spinal cord injury recovery can be an intimidating experience, but patients have made great progress as a result of seeking effective treatment.
Here is the story of one brave man who underwent Epidural Stimulation treatment with great success, to help regain more independence.
Brinston Tchana was involved in a tragic accident in Spain, where he grew up. The accident was caused by a drunk driver, and it dramatically altered the course of Brinston’s life. Despite being the only survivor of the accident, he didn’t walk away unscathed. He sustained a T6 spinal cord injury that ended up confining him to a wheelchair.
Despite this, Brinston maintained an upbeat attitude.
Not ready to give up on the chance for recovery, Brinston conducted some research of his own. After learning about Epidural Stimulation, Brinston began to feel hopeful. He felt Epidural Stimulation offered the best chance of recovery and regaining independence. Whilst researching his options, the then 19-year-old discovered the opportunity for treatment in Bangkok and traveled there in late 2016 for this revolutionary procedure combined with regenerative treatment and extensive rehabilitation.
