    Is Epidural Stimulation only hope?

    Please correct me if i understand wrong that Epidural Stimulation is the only hope for bladder bowel sexual function recovery in chronic lumbar injury patients?
    I don't think any other therapy coming soon as Epidural Stimulation to cure these deficits.

    No one has proved this returns BBS ... too early to tell. Not sure how this works on sphincter muscles either.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    That would be the project aim within SPARC (Stimulating Peripheral Activity to Relieve Conditions). They are laying the scientific foundation to pilot new and improved neural modulation devices and stimulation protocols specifically to treat things like bowel, bladder and sexual function for SCI...
