Spinal Neuromodulation in Cerebral Palsy, Parts One and Two
Podcaster: Dr. Mindy Silva, Guest Contributor
WiredON Development's podcast "Spinal Neuromodulation in Cerebral Palsy" has been described as DROP EVERYTHING ELSE YOU'RE DOING AND LISTEN.
Did we need to shout that? Yes. And rightfully so.
Dr. Mindy Silva has an in-depth chat with her guests Dr. Reggie Edgerton and Dr. Susan Hastings as they pull the curtain back on the mechanism of cerebral palsy, motor learning, neuroplasticity, and so much more.
If you’re not familiar with Dr. Reggie Edgerton, Dr. Silva describes him as the father of using neuromodulation to reorganize neural networks after spinal cord injury. And Dr. Susan Hastings is the physical therapist who discovered the application of spinal neuromodulation in the recovery of function for children with cerebral palsy.
So pop those white earbuds in and get ready as Dr. Silva digs into their theories and hypotheses, practical applications, and current understandings of how the spinal cord is able to change the brain and deliver truly unbelievable outcomes in children with cerebral palsy.
And note, it's a two parter. Part 2 is a continuation of their conversation, where they get into the nitty-gritty details about the benefits of low-intensity amplitude with spinal neuromodulation. Enjoy!
