Monkeys Who Were Previously Paralyzed Regain Movement
I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Spinal Cord Injury lawyer. When people are involved in a serious car accident there are several medical problems that may develop. One of the most severe is a spinal cord injury. The spinal cord contains nerves that descend from the brain and eventually filter out into the rest of the body. If the cord is damaged, such as in spine fractures, people may become paralyzed. In the past, people have been told that a paralysis injury is a permanent injury that will never heal; however, a few monkeys recently received a new lease of life.
