Understanding Jeffrey's Treatment
Epidural stimulation is an incredible treatment for spinal cord injury patients that continues to help those who received it. It involves implanting a device on the spine through a minor, minimally invasive surgery. From there, this device uses electrical currents to stimulate the muscles and encourage movement once more in the patient. Time after time, the results have been staggering, leaving patients optimistic and with significant improvements in their condition.
Jeffrey’s treatment in Bangkok included Epidural Stimulation, followed by extensive training and rehabilitation sessions. Only a few days had passed before Jeffrey noticed improvements in several areas. After 8 years, he was able to move his ankles once more again and he knew that this was only the beginning of the progress that lay before him.According to Jeffrey, he chose to pursue this breakthrough spinal cord injury treatment because he was so inspired by his son.
