26 Feb Vishnu’s Fight Against C7 Spinal Cord Injury with Epidural Stimulation
Spinal Cord Injury is a serious physical trauma that leaves long and lasting effects on a patient’s daily life. Nevertheless, with a rising number of patients being afflicted by this life-changing injury also comes new studies and research for a treatment that would help reverse the trauma.
For instance, Epidural Stimulation, which involves a surgical implantation of a stimulating device on the patient’s lumbar spine where it would trigger locomotor-like activities, is considered a breakthrough treatment and has restored many Spinal Cord Injury patients to live more normal and independent lives.
Vishnu Agarwal, a 48-year-old man from India, sustained a C7 Spinal Cord Injury following an unfortunate accident. Despite this life-changing twist, Vishnu is determined to put up the best fight he could. Together with his loving wife, Vishnu traveled to Bangkok to undergo the breakthrough Epidural Stimulation, in combination with an extensive Rehabilitation Program. After the surgery and only a week into Physiotherapy, Vishnu already started to notice positive improvements. He shares with us that he is able to move his knees and ankles voluntarily now.
As a big supporter, the change in Vishnu’s prolonged condition also thrilled his wife.
“It is like a miracle. After 4 and a half years, he can move his legs on his own. It’s like a dream. I couldn’t believe it”
Vishnu’s journey to treat his C7 Spinal Cord Injury is truly a heartwarming one. He is backed up by the endless support from his wife, who accompanied him to Bangkok, and his children, with whom a daily “Facetime” session was a normal routine. Driven by the strong force of love and motivation, Vishnu is fighting as hard as ever to get back on his feet again.
