    I don't know of any legitimate medical facility or surgeon in the USA or Canada who freeze spinal cords in those newly injured, football players or otherwise. There are a number who do spinal cord COOLING by flushing and chilling (not freezing) the damaged cord area with cold sterile saline solution. Not the same thing at all. And this is no guarantee that it will decrease the extent of damage to the cord.

    In addition, the animal studies have not been duplicated in humans, and note that the dogs had their own heads reattached to their own bodies, so no problems with tissue matching or immune rejection (or evidence other than these "researchers" claims that they walked again). A number of animals at a lower level than primates can regenerate significant amounts of spinal cord damage: cats for example.

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.
