Dr. David Samadi discusses a new medical breakthrough that is bringing hope to those with spinal cord injuries. When the spinal cord is damaged or severed, it prevents impulses from the brain that control our motor functions from reaching our extremities. This is a cause behind paralysis of the arms and legs after accidents resulting in spinal injuries.

What doctors have been able to do is to bypass the damaged area of the spinal cord using new nerve stimulator technology. These stimulators are capable of carrying electrical impulses to the nerves that are normally cut off due to the spinal injury, allowing use of the limbs.

This technology can be used in about 10-15% of patients currently.
