Five Years After Being Paralyzed from the Chest Down, Dustin Shillcox Completes the New...

After crossing the finish line in the New York City Marathon Sunday, hand cyclist Dustin Shillcox had a message for the millions of people living with paralysis. "I'm living proof nothing is impossible." The 31-year-old from Green River, Wyoming, is paralyzed from the chest down, but that didn't stop him from racing in the marathon and crossing the finish line in one hour, 46 minutes and 49 seconds.

Study Examines Difference Between High- and Low-frequency Spinal Cord Stimulation

Spinal cord stimulation is nothing new, but a new study suggests that maybe we have been approaching it the wrong way; or rather, that maybe we have more to learn about it. But, in case you don’t know, spinal cord stimulation is a type of pain management which involves placing an implant under the skin which delivers electric pulses to the torso or the limbs to relieve chronic pain. Typically, spinal cord stimulation involves delivering low-frequency waves (40 to 60 Hz) but a new study says that, perhaps, high-frequency (up to 10,000 Hz) might be better in some cases.
