Epidural stimulation is a next-generation treatment for spinal cord injury, taking treatment one step further than traditional methods.
There are three key areas impacted by spinal cord injury – motor function (movement), sensory function (feeling), and autonomic function (bodily functions). Traditional methods such as physical and occupational therapy, or mobility aids, can have some impact on motor function and help patients to live with paralysis. However, epidural stimulation can physiologically improve all three functions, with patients seeing results such as:
- Voluntary movement
- Ability to stand up and take steps
- Improved strength and stamina
- Increased sensation
- Regulation of body temperature
- Reduction of spasms
- Stabilized blood pressure
- Improved bladder and bowel control
- Relief from neuropathic pain
We have seen a great deal of success in using epidural stimulation to treat spinal cord injury, with the majority of our patients so far seeing good results. Despite the high impact of the treatment, the device implantation surgery itself is minimally invasive, quick, and low risk, with a short recovery time.
As a result of the fast and impressive results of our treatment, many patients also report a great improvement to their mental health. The improvement of motor, sensory and autonomic functions greatly impacts the quality of life and gives our patients renewed hope for the future. Verita Neuro acts as a continued partner to patients’ recovery journeys, helping them to feel supported before, during, and after the treatment.
