My father in law has got a spinal cord injury where his plates just below the base of the head (neck region) have become compressed. I believe it's the F4 and F5 plates or it could even be the F5 and F6 plates).
The neurosurgeons said that an operation might result in complications so to try physiotherapy and see if there are improvements. There were improvements in the first two to three months but in the last six to seven weeks, there has been a regression back to my father in law not being able to get up and walk. Are there any new techniques available.
Someone said there is a new technique whereby something is injected where the compression has taken place and then recovery is quite rapid. Is this true?
